Spike In "Hepatitis A" Cases Prompts Health Warning   Date: Monday 26 December, 2005
News Summary:
December 2, 2005

(CBS) LOS ANGELES A reminder to wash produce thoroughly was issued Thursday by Los Angeles County health officials because of an increase in the number of hepatitis A cases reported this year.

News Content:
In September, 13, diners at a restaurant were infected with hepatitis A. A month later, 19 people were infected after eating contaminated lettuce at a catered event, officials said.

In October, there were 32 reported cases in Los Angeles, compared to five cases of hepatitis A in October 2004.

Unwashed produce can transmit hepatitis A, e. coli and salmonella. Officials say even produce that comes pre-packaged and labeled as having been washed should be rinsed in cold, running water.

Hepatitis A is usually spread from person to person through a fecal-oral route. Thoroughly washing hands with soap and hot water after using the bathroom, before handling food and getting timely immunizations can help prevent the spread of the disease.

Symptoms of the disease include, fever, chills, muscle aches, fatigue, jaundice, nausea, loss of appetite and vomiting.
