Lone Star Steakhouse in Evansville, IN Linked to Hepatitis A Scare

Hepatitis A immunization clinics to be offered for Lone Star Steakhouse customers in Evansville, IN

The Vanderburgh County Health Department and Indiana State Department of Health announced May 10, 2012 that a Lone Star restaurant employee had been diagnosed with hepatitis A virus and had worked while infectious. Both public health agencies encouraged any Lone Star restaurant customers who had eaten at the restaurant between April 27 and May 3 to receive prophylaxis to prevent hepatitis A infection. The infected employee also worked at the restaurant from April 20 - 26, 2012, but preventive treatment is unavailable for those customers, who may already be infected with hepatitis A.

Hepatitis A Infection

Hepatitis A is a viral infection of the liver that causes a mild to severe illness that in the worst case can result in liver failure. Early symptoms of hepatitis A infection include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, pale colored stools, and dark urine. Jaundice, a yellowing of the skin and eyes, typically sets in a few days after initial symptoms of hepatitis A infection appear.

Adults are more likely than children to exhibit symptoms of hepatitis A infection, and are more likely to suffer liver failure.
