Hepatitis A may have spreads at local Quiznos adult content

The person who may have spread this should be charge with over hundreds of counts of assault! In this state you are suppose to wear gloves when preparing food. People who ate here between July 27th and August 7th needs to be checked but the people who ate there in July are out of luck on getting the vaccine to stop it. I'll try to find the link to the one that says it could have been spread at the end of July 100-500 people should have been affected by this! It actually says in the video that the ones in July are to late.,0,7031127.story

  • SALT LAKE CITY - The Salt Lake Valley Health Department is offering a Hepatitis A vaccine shot for people who ate at a Salt Lake City Quizno's restaurant during the first week of August. So far they have treated 64 people and expect to treat more who may have been exposed to the virus at the downtown location.

    SLVHD is urging patrons of the Quizno's at 30 East Broadway (300 South), who ate there August 5 through the 7th, to get an injection of immune globulin (IG) or hepatitis A vaccine as soon as possible. Vaccinations will be available at the Salt Lake Valley Health Department City Clinic at 621 South 200 East on Thursday, August 19 until 5:00 p.m., Friday, August 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. or Saturday, August 21 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

  • "The manager said she was actually handling food. The same day she got ill and went to the hospital," said Sharon Moon, SLVD's manager of immunizations. "The manager of the Quizno's said the daily volume of clients is from 100 to 500 and he thinks 150 -200 is the average number of people per day."

    Those individuals should watch for signs of hepatitis A, which include nausea, vomiting, dark urine and jaundice, and contact their health care providers if they become sick.

    No other Quizno's restaurants were affected.

  • spreads? as in Ranch, Honey Mustard, or hepatitis?

  • Ok, first off, glove usage does not always prevent spread of disease. It's far more likely that a person will continue to use contaminated gloves longer than they would go between hand washings. People see gloves and feel better, but the reality is, those suckers can be really gross.

    Secondly, she had no way of knowing she was going to get sick, so why should she be charged with assault? Hep A is spread many ways, mostly through fecal/oral contamination, so she may have picked it up out to eat unknowingly and passed it on.
