USA – Hepatitis A – Restaurant

Food Poisoning Bulletin Virusds

An employee at a Red Robin restaurant in Stroudsburg, PA has been diagnosed with Hepatitis A. All employees of the restaurant have been given a vaccination, but customers who visited the restaurant between April 16 and May 5 may have been exposed and could be at risk for developing an infection.

These customers should contact the health department at 1-877-PA-HEALTH. The vaccine, either a hepatitis A vaccination or an immune globulin vaccination, can prevent illness if administered within two weeks of exposure. If you have had hepatitis A in the past or have had the vaccination, you are most likely protected. Check with your doctor to make sure if you have concerns.
