The FDA says the action follows an investigation by its officials and those with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state and local health authorities.
The FDA and CDC have determined that the most likely vehicle for the hepatitis A virus appears to be a common shipment of pomegranate seeds from a Turkish company, Goknur Foodstuffs Import Export Trading.
