The Centers for Disease Control has learned the source of a major hepatitis A outbreak that has affected more than 150 people across nine states.

Doctors believe pomegranate seeds shipped to the U.S. from Turkey are the source of the infections.

The seeds are used in Townsend Farms Organic Anti-oxidant Blend juice mix. The company has issued a voluntary recall.

The CDC has ordered a halt to all deliveries as it works with importers to ensure consumers are alerted.
