Nature Of Danger:

Hepatitis A infection is an acute disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus. Symptoms include fever, loss of appetite, nausea, abdominal pain, and jaundice.

Older people are more likely to have more severe symptoms and some infected children do not have any symptoms at all. The incubation period (time between initial infection and first symptoms appearing) is on average 28 days but can range from 15 to 50 day.

A distribution list will be emailed to PEHOs in due course. Please notify the FSAI (foodincidents@fsai.ie) of any concerns.
