A hepatitis A outbreak linked to fresh blackberries sold at Fresh Thyme Farmers Market stores has now sickened at least 16 people across six states, federal health officials announced this week.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in November announced the outbreak, which, at the time, affected at least 11 people in three states: Indiana, Nebraska, and Wisconsin.

In an updated notice on Monday, however, officials said residents in Michigan, Minnesota, and Missouri have also been sickened by the outbreak.

Overall, there have been 16 reported cases, seven of which have occurred in Nebraska. At least nine people have been hospitalized, but no deaths have been reported at this time.

Fresh Thyme has said it’s cooperating with the investigation and working with suppliers to identify the source of the contamination.
