Nearly 130 people in the U.S. have been sickened with hepatitis A recently, with the illness linked to imported pomegranate seeds. SurvivalSeeds4Patriots recommends using only locally grown, heirloom seeds.

After growing and enjoying these nutritious vegetables, gardeners can use the seeds from the harvest for next year’s crops, so they never have to buy seeds again.

As reported by NBC News, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration stated that it would detain shipments of pomegranate seeds imported from Turkey due to concerns about a link to an outbreak of acute hepatitis A that has sickened 127 people in eight U.S. states.

Frozen berry fruit mixes sold at Costco and Harris Teeter stores – Townsend Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend and Harris Teeter Organic Antioxidant Blend – were recalled following a rash of illnesses apparently connected to them and linked to the imported pomegranate seeds, according to the NBC News report. Also recalled were Woodstock Frozen Organic Pomegranate Kernels.

SurvivalSeeds4Patriots believes that Americans would be better served if they ate fruits and vegetables grown only from locally grown, open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-genetically modified seeds.

Providing a path to independence and self-sufficiency, SurvivalSeeds4Patriots offers the Liberty Seed Vault. The air-tight metal storage container includes more than 5,400 heirloom seeds from 21 varieties of vegetables including broccoli, spinach, carrots, squash, corn, tomatoes, onions, beets and zucchini.

After growing and enjoying these nutritious vegetables, gardeners can use the seeds from the harvest for next year’s crops, so they never have to buy seeds again. The company says that this strategy provides additional benefits because it allows people to be less affected by food shortages and increasing food prices.

Unfortunately, not everyone is able to grow a garden. But after storms such as Katrina and Sandy, as well as many other weather events, many people have learned the hard way that having a stockpile of emergency food is a must. Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, will be launching soon to help people be prepared for a crisis.
