Urban Remedy says if you bought this product, you should not consume it. If you already did, call your doctor to see if you need a vaccination.

“At Urban Remedy, food safety is our company’s top priority.

Hepatitis A is a contagious virus that can cause liver disease.

The infection ranges in severity from a mild sickness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months.

According to the FDA, people infected with Hepatitis A will start feeling sick within 15 to 50 days of eating or drinking contaminated food or water.

Symptoms include fever, headache, tiredness, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, jaundice, dark urine and pale stool.

In some instances, typically in children under the age of six, Hepatitis A infections may not show any symptoms.

If you do have symptoms of Hepatitis A, the FDA says you should call your doctor right away, but, so far, no illnesses have been reported from consuming Urban Remedy products.

If you bought this product and have questions about it, call (855) 875-8423 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. or email
