Hepatitis A Outbreak At Pizzeria In Cheektowaga
A food handler Doino's Pizzeria Bar & Grill in Cheektowaga has been linked to an outbreak of Hepatitis A. Three cases have been confirmed and linked back to this one location.
In a statement from Mark Poloncarz,
"Anyone who ate at Doino's Pizzeria Bar and Grille (2709 Harlem Road, Cheektowaga) from August 20 - Sept. 3 should monitor themselves and families for symptoms of Hepatitis A as a cook there had Hepatitis A and appears to have infected 3 others who ate there during that period."
In other cases, people who ate at the establishment would be able to take preventative measures but too much time has passed since exposure. This means people who ate in that window of time need to carefully monitor their health and if they show symptoms need to contact a medical professional. You should monitor for 50 days since exposure, which would put most people towards the end of October.
