PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Those who’ve stopped at Evo’s Coffee Lounge in Ashland, Ore., recently may need to get checked for Hepatitis A.
The Oregon Public Health Division reports the eatery used a potentially tainted berry blend in its “Radically Free” smoothie up until last week.
Fairview, Ore.-based Townsend Farms recalled those frozen berries two weeks ago. The Oregon-based farm reports that pomegranate seeds, harvested in Turkey, are to blame for the Hepatitis A risk.
More than 60 cases have been identified in Nevada, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Hawaii. Those included four Utah hepatitis A cases. Health officials in Salt Lake City have said none of the victims were hospitalized, and all have recovered.
