Just days after supermarket chain Kroger issued a recall of certain batches of frozen blackberries over concerns of possible hepatitis A contamination, warehouse club Costco issued its own recall on Tuesday.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, produce wholesaler Townsend Farms informed Costco of a recent test that determined that one of Townsend's frozen blackberry products was possibly contaminated with the virus. Townsend used "the domestic conventional frozen blackberry" to manufacture the Kirkland Signature Three Berry Blend product, the item in question, the company said in an announcement posted on the FDA's website.

Heads up, consumers: Kroger has issued a recall of some of its frozen berries over a possible Hepatitis A contamination . In a statement Friday, Kroger announced it was recalling potentially contaminated items from its “Private Selection” brand. Those items include its Private Selection

The product has Best By Dates between February 16, 2020, and May 4, 2020 (the specific dates can be found here), Townsend said. Townsend added that Costco only sold the blackberries in San Diego, Los Angeles and Hawaii.

Although the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control noted that no customers have reported any illnesses related to the blackberries, Townsend and Costco are purportedly exercising caution and asking customers to dispose of the product.

Last Friday, Kroger announced that it would recall a selection of blackberry products that were also manufactured by Townsend. Those products include the 48-ounce and 16-ounce Private Selection Frozen Triple Berry Medley, along with the 16-ounce Private Selection Frozen Blackberries.

Produce Pro Says This Is The RIGHT Way To Wash Your Berries

Produce Pro Says This Is The RIGHT Way To Wash Your Berries According to the President of NYC's Citarella gourmet market, the key is to dip them in one part white vinegar and three parts water. Use a colander rather than a bowl — because the goal is to dip the berries, not soak them — and swirl them around. (But again, be sure not to soak them!) "The soaking is going to get the vinegar flavor in that porous skin," Helen explains. After you've dipped and swirled, just pop your berries back in the fridge until you're ready to eat them. Simple enough! Watch Helen demonstrate this technique in the video above.

The contamination was discovered during a frozen berry sampling by the Food and Drug Administration, the grocery chain said. Consumers who’ve eaten the recalled frozen berries are urged to consult with their health care professionals to determine whether vaccination is appropriate.

Recalled products include frozen Blackberries, Triple Berry Medley, and Three Berry Blend.

"Kroger has removed the potentially affected items from store shelves and initiated its customer recall notification system that alerts customers who may have purchased recalled products through register receipt tape messages and phone calls," the supermarket chain said in a statement.

Hepatitis A is a contagious liver infection that can lead to fatigue, sudden nausea, abdominal pain, joint pain and jaundice, according to Mayo Clinic. It can be spread through poor hygiene, having contaminated food or water, being near someone who's infected or having sex with someone who has the virus.
