HEALTH WARNING: Area Restaurant Worker Prepared Food While Infected With Hepatitis A

From Local Sources 

VINCENNES -- A Knox County restaurant was forced to close for cleaning after a worker prepared food while infected with Hepatitis A.

Health officials say it happened at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Vincennes.  The employee worked sick June 30th and July 1st.

According to the health department, while it is rare for a person to become infected from a sick food handler, anyone who ate at the restaurant during that time frame should get the HEP A vaccine.

A free vaccination clinic will be held in Vincennes on Friday from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Knox County Health Department.

Symptoms of Hepatitis A include loss of appetite, nausea, tiredness, fever, stomach pain, brown-colored urine and light-colored stools.

You can become sick up to 7 weeks after exposure.
