New Hawaii Sea Restaurant Hepatitis A Outbreak

According to health officials, customers who ate food from New Hawaii Sea Restaurant in the Bronx (located at 1475 Williamsbridge Road) between September 7 and September 19 should receive hepatitis A vaccine as soon as possible to prevent hepatitis A infection.

Vaccination can prevent infection or lessen the symptoms of hepatitis A if it is administered within 14 days of exposure.

People who ate food prepared at the restaurant, either in-store, through catering or delivery and are unable to receive a vaccine because the 14-day exposure window has closed should seek medical treatment if they fall ill with symptoms of hepatitis A infection.

Hepatitis A infection

Hepatitis A infection is spread through a fecal-oral route. The virus can be spread on food contaminated by an infected person.

Symptoms of hepatitis A infection include fatigue, abdominal pain, nausea and diarrhea. After a few days, jaundice—a yellowing of the skin and eyes—sets in.
