In our modern world, the way in which food is processed and distributed to the masses comes with a pretty apparent caveat. As a consumer, we have no choice but to put a lot of trust in the big companies that make the food we eat, trusting that even our favorite brands are handling food properly and adhering to the highest standards. When a company announces a recall of one of its products, while it may be an inconvenience at the moment, it solidifies my faith in the brand by showing that they take our health and well-being seriously. 

No stranger to the value of a solid customer relationship, Costco recently announced a recall of one of its frozen food products — 4-pound (1.81 kg) bags of Wawona Frozen Foods Organic Daybreak Blend — due to potential hepatitis A contamination. The popular bulk-buying membership club sent out an official notice on Thursday, June 8 notifying customers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah, and Washington who may have purchased the frozen food in question between the dates of April 15, 2022, and June 26, 2022 of the risk, as well as providing important information to help identify the exact contaminated product. The recall includes Best if used by dates of 9/23/2023, 9/29/2023, 9/30/2023, and 10/18/2023 and a slew of lot codes that can all be found in detail here.

Hepatitis A, while preventable by vaccine, spreads through contaminated food or water, or with contact with someone who is already infected. Symptoms can include fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, and even a low-grade fever. 

Although the recall notice claims that hepatitis A has not been detected in the product and that there are no illnesses that have come up associated with the product, Costco is still practicing extreme caution within the matter. Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the food and return it to their local Costco for a full refund. Furthermore, if you have any questions, feel free to call 866-534-9986 or visit for more details.
