but containing Pomegranate Arils from Turkey
by Hepatitis lawyer Tony Coveny, Ph.D.
While many thousands may have become infected with Hepatitis A Food Poisoning after eating the Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant berries sold at Costco, the CDC was only able to identify 165 of them who had the proper testing and diagnosis. The victims mostly came from the Western United States or had travelled there during the outbreak period. The victims came form 10 states, including California with 80 identified victims, Colorado and Arizona with about two dozen identified victims each, about a dozen identified victims in New Mexico, and fewer than 10 identified victims in each of Hawaii, New Hampshire, Nevada, Utah, New jersey, and Wisconsin.
WARNING: at least 8 infections were secondary, with victims who ate the berries directly passing the virus on to loved ones during the period when they were contagious.
About a dozen kids were identified, and nearly half were hospitalized. the victims all became sick in 2013, with the earliest known case presenting at the end of March and the latest known case presenting in mid August. All of the identified victims bought he berries at their Costco store, though records show the berries may also have been sold at Harris Teeters.
As noted above, no serotype is available for this pathogen, as would be for an outbreak of salmonella or E. coli, but all the cases were of genotype 1B, which although not conclusive indication of inclusion in this outbreak, does provide substantiation that a person's infection was of the same general origin as the outbreak - the genotype originates in Africa and the Middle East, and is rare in North America. In most cases, an acute infection, coupled with exposure to the product, is considered proof of infection/inclusion in this outbreak.
The FDA and the CDC worked together with state and local health agencies to trace the infections back to a shipment of pomegranate seeds from Turkey, the company being Goknur Foodstuffs Import Export Trading. Most of the hepatitis lawsuits pending name Townsend Farms, primarily, and then United Fruit, Purely Pomegranate, Goknur and Costco, or some mixture thereof. Each of these entities is believes to have had something to do with the importation, distribution, or processing of the contaminated pomegranate arils.
Litigation is ongoing, with the Turkish company, Goknur, trying to argue that it is not amenable to judicial process it the U.S., and other defendants seeking to bring them in as the most responsible party.
