Hepatitis A Case Under Investigation at Beverly Hills Whole Foods

whole foods hepatitis case

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 19, 2024)The Los Angeles Public Health Department is investigating a Hepatitis A case linked to a Beverly Hills Whole Foods. An employee at the seafood counter of the store, located at 239 North Crescent Drive, tested positive for the virus.

 

Officials advise anyone who purchased seafood products from the store between April 20 and May 13 to get vaccinated if they are not already immune. This follows recent warnings about Hepatitis A in L.A. County, with several cases among unhoused individuals since mid-March.

 

Hepatitis A affects the liver and can be spread person-to-person. Diagnosis requires blood or stool tests. Though the current public risk is low, officials recommend vaccination, thorough handwashing, and awareness of symptoms such as fever, nausea, abdominal pain, and jaundice.
