At least six of 30 cases of the liver disease were in California — one each in Orange, Riverside, San Diego and Humboldt counties, and two in San Bernardino County.

The virus was believed to be linked to Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend. Costco has removed the product from its shelves, according to the California Department of Public Health.
