Although this should work it doesn’t appear to work very well.

But if you have neither of the above, you can sign up for the $4.99 plan and then cancel and a special offer will be presented where you can get a reduced rate of $2.50 per month then if you want to change over to the Plus  option add free it would be at the reduced $5 per month vs $10/mo.

Hepatitis A

Product Description:
Frozen Organic Strawberries

Company Announcement

California Splendor, Inc. of San Diego, California is recalling certain lots of 4-lb. bags of Kirkland Signature Frozen Organic Strawberries that were sold at Costco stores in Los Angeles, Hawaii and two San Diego business centers, due to an outbreak of Hepatitis A illnesses. Although, Hepatitis A has not been detected on this product, out of an abundance of caution, consumers should stop consuming the food and return it to their local Costco store for a refund.

Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease that results from exposure to the Hepatitis A virus, including from food. It can range from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious illness lasting several months. Illness generally occurs within 15 to 50 days of exposure and includes fatigue, abdominal pain, jaundice, abnormal liver tests, dark urine and pale stool. In rare cases, particularly consumers who have a pre-existing severe illness or are immune compromised, Hepatitis A infection can progress to liver failure.

Illness occurs within 15 to 50 days of exposure and includes fatigue, abdominal pain, jaundice, abnormal liver tests, dark urine and pale stool. Hepatitis A vaccination can prevent illness if given within two weeks of exposure to a contaminated food. Persons who may have consumed affected product should consult with their health care professional or local health department to determine if a vaccination is appropriate, and consumers with symptoms of Hepatitis A should contact their health care professionals or the local health department immediately.

The lots subject to this recall are as follows:

140962-08 142222-23 142792-54 142862-57 142912-59
142162-20 142202-21 142782-53 142852-56 142902-58
142212-22 142232-24 142842-55

The lot number can be identified on the back of the bag as shown below:

The company has ceased the production and distribution of the affected product as FDA and the company continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.

Pasadena’s Gas-Powered Leaf Blower Ban Takes Effect Next Month
Pasadena’s Gas-Powered Leaf Blower
Ban Takes Effect Next Month
Beginning April 28, the use of gas-powered leaf blowers will be prohibited in the City of Pasadena. A new state law bans the sale of gas-powered leaf blowers by the start of 2024 to help achieve 100% zero emissions in California from small off-road engines (SOREs) by 2035.
As part of SB 170, $27 million was available to sole proprietors and other small landscaping businesses to assist in the purchase of zero-emission SOREs, including leaf-blowing machines, lawnmowers and string trimmers. There is currently $17.2 million in funding that remains available.
California Clean Off-Road Equipment Voucher Incentive Project (CORE) is offering point-of-sale discounts of up to $400 per electric-powered leaf blower for small business and sole-proprietor landscapers.
Visit for more details and a list of participating dealers.
There is also a rebate of up to 75% off the cost of an electric leaf blower offered by South Coast AQMD via their Commercial Lawn and Garden Equipment exchange program (late March/April rollout). The AQMD rebate can be stacked with the CORE voucher.
Pasadena City Council voted to ban the use of gas-powered leaf blowers in March 2022. The ban also makes it illegal to use a leaf blower to cause debris to travel beyond the property boundaries of the parcel on which it is being used, to adjoining properties or public rights-of-way within the city, and to remain there for more than 15 minutes. Electric-powered leaf blowers may only be used between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday – Friday, and 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturdays. It remains unlawful for leaf blowers to be operated on Sundays and holidays.
As is current practice for leaf blower complaints, Code Compliance will respond as soon as possible and may conduct a follow-up inspection. Warning notice with a 30-day compliance period will be issued to the landscape business owner/operator. Continued violations will result in issuance of citations.
For more information, visit the City of Pasadena’s Planning & Community Development Department website.

Para más información sobre esta reunión pública, y cómo este cambio impactará su factura, llame al 1-800-342-4545.

Why am I receiving this notice?
Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) would like to hear from you. You are invited to participate in a public forum, also called a Public Participation Hearing (PPH), about SoCalGas’ 2024 General Rate Case (GRC) application. At the public forum, you can make comments and raise concerns with the CPUC’s Administrative Law Judge (Judge) who is overseeing this rate increase request.

How will the public forums be held?
As part of the CPUC’s ongoing efforts to protect customers and community members, and provide the greatest access, these hearings will be held virtually. Your participation by providing your thoughts on SoCalGas’ request can help the CPUC make an informed decision.

You can also provide written public comments at any time during the proceeding at

SoCalGas’ March 6 and March 15, 2023, PPHs will be held virtually, meaning you can participate via internet or via phone using the access details above. Please note: If you need a language interpreter for these virtual hearings, please contact the CPUC’s Public Advisor’s Office using the contact information at the end of this notice at least five business days before the Public Forum. If you wish to make a public comment, you must participate by phone using the phone number above. After calling in and entering the passcode above, press *1, unmute your phone and record your name when prompted. You will be put into a queue in the order you dialed in.

Why is SoCalGas requesting this increase?
On May 16, 2022, SoCalGas filed its 2024 General Rate Case application (A.22-05-015) with the CPUC. The application, as updated in November 2022, requests authority to increase revenues for 2024-2027. SoCalGas is requesting to increase revenues by $738 million (20.2% increase over 2023 expected revenues) in 2024. This application also includes requested increases of $295 million (6.7%) in 2025, $261 million (5.6%) in 2026, and $379 million (7.7%) in 2027. The cumulative requested revenue increase is $4,740 million.

Every four years, SoCalGas is required to file a GRC application with the CPUC to set annual revenues. Annual revenues are the total amount of money a utility is allowed to collect through rates in a given year. The revenues requested in this application pay for the costs of owning and operating gas infrastructure. This application does not include the cost to purchase natural gas for SoCalGas customers and does not determine how revenues are assigned to customer groups. Those are evaluated and authorized in separate proceedings.

SoCalGas is requesting this increase to:

Continue to invest in its gas delivery system to enhance safety and reliability, and to manage risks that could impact its employees, customers, and/or system;
Invest in the gas system and technologies that advance clean energy for customers and the environment;
Continue to invest in the needs of customers by enabling diverse customer service capabilities, and to empower customers with information and tools to better manage their gas use;
Meet regulatory and compliance requirements driven by system safety and reliability and environmental compliance; and
Invest in efforts and programs to maintain a highly-trained, qualified, and diverse workforce.

If the CPUC approves this application, SoCalGas will implement new revenues in gas rates beginning on January 1, 2024. This will impact your monthly bill.

How could this affect my monthly gas bill?
If SoCalGas’ rate request is approved by the CPUC, the typical residential monthly bill using 36 therms per month would increase by approximately $8.28 or 13.2% per month in 2024, compared to estimated 2023. Individual customer bills may vary.

How does the rest of this process work?
The assigned Judge will consider proposals and evidence presented during the formal hearing process. The Judge will issue a proposed decision that may adopt SoCalGas’s application, modify it, or deny it. Any CPUC Commissioner may sponsor an alternate decision with a different outcome. The proposed decision, and any alternate decision(s), will be discussed and voted upon by the CPUC Commissioners at a public CPUC Voting Meeting.

Parties to the proceeding are currently reviewing SoCalGas’ application, including the Public Advocates Office. The Public Advocates Office is an independent consumer advocate within the CPUC that represents customers to obtain the lowest possible rate for service consistent with reliable and safe service levels. For more information, please call 1-415-703-1584, email, or visit

Your participation by providing your thoughts on SoCalGas’ request can help the CPUC make an informed decision.
