AIRDRIE (660 NEWS) – Alberta Health Services is warning people that they may have been exposed to Hepatitis A after eating at a restaurant in Airdrie.

In a statement, it says someone who prepared food at Zenbu Japanese Restaurant was infectious, and people who ate there between June 15 and June 29 may have been exposed.

If you ate at the restaurant on June 27, 28, or 29, immunization is available and AHS officials advise you should call Health Link immediately at 811.

This is the second such incident to happen in Airdrie recently.

Last month AHS said an employee at Airdrie’s Thang Long Vietnamese Restaurant was also infected with Hepatitis A and anyone who ate there between May 27 and June 13 may have been exposed.

Symptoms for Hepatitis A include fatigue, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, and yellowing of the eyes or skin.

It is also advised to monitor for symptoms for 50 days after last eating at the restaurant, as it can take several weeks for illness to occur.
