Company Announcement

(Clovis, California) Wawona Frozen Foods is voluntarily recalling year-old packages of its Organic DayBreak Blend distributed to Costco Wholesale stores in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah and Washington from April 15, 2022 to June 26, 2022 because the DayBreak Blend includes organic frozen strawberries grown in Mexico which may have the potential to be contaminated with Hepatitis A.

Wawona Frozen Foods is issuing this voluntary recall for the year-old Organic DayBreak Blend out of an abundance of caution. There have been no illnesses associated with this voluntary and precautionary recall.

While the Organic DayBreak Blend was distributed to Costco stores last year, they have “Use By” dates of 09/23/2023, 09/29/2023, 09/30/2023 and 10/18/2023 therefore consumers are urged to check their freezers for the recalled blend, not to consume it and either discard the product or return it to the store for a refund.

The year-old recalled Organic DayBreak Blend product is no longer available for purchase at Costco. Organic DayBreak Blend products on store shelves currently or that have different lot codes or purchase dates are not subject to this recall.

The recalled year-old Organic DayBreak Blend includes these lot codes:

Affected Lot Codes:Affected Lot Codes:Affected Lot Codes:Affected Lot Codes:

The recalled year-old DayBreak Blend packaging: 4 LB (1.81 KG) (see images below)

Hepatitis A is a contagious virus that can cause liver disease. A Hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months. In rare cases, particularly consumers who have a pre-existing severe illness or are immune compromised, Hepatitis A infections can progress to liver failure. Illness usually occurs within 15 to 50 days after eating or drinking contaminated food or water. Symptoms of Hepatitis A infection include fever, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, jaundice, dark urine or pale stool. In some instances, particularly in children under the age of six, Hepatitis A infection may be asymptomatic. Persons who may have consumed affected product should consult their health care provider or local health department to determine if a vaccination is appropriate and consumers with symptoms of Hepatitis A should contact their health providers or the local health department immediately.
