Baked Goods From Mount Pleasant Meijer Possibly Tainted With Hepatitis A

Meijer Hepatitis A Exposure Personal Injury LawyersMichigans top health authority has issued a hepatitis A warning to customers who consumed Meijer bakery goods from a Mount Pleasant store in the past month.

MLive Media Group reported the warning Thursday.

The state's departments of Health and Human Services and Agriculture and Rural Development issued a joint statment after a bakery food worker at the 1015 Pickard Street store was diagnosed with hepatitis A.

"Persons who consumed any baked goods made on-site at the bakery department of this Meijer store between August 23 and September 20, 2017 may have been exposed to the hepatitis A virus," according to the joint statement.

Anyone with products from that time period should throw them away. No other Meijer stores or bakeries are affected.

"These baked goods will bear the Meijer Bakery label, and would include individual items such as single doughnuts and rolls from the self-serve case," according to the statement.

Michigan's Health and Human Services and Agriculture Department is advising those who frequented the store to look out for symptoms such as "sudden onset of abdominal discomfort, dark urine, fever, diarrhea, and yellow skin and eyes."

If taken within two weeks of exposure, the hepatitis A vaccine or immune globulin may provide protection against the disease, according to the statement.

The Mount Pleasant Meijer is offering the vaccine free of charge to any employees or customers who are concerned about the exposure, reports.

According to Mayo Clinic, signs typically don't appear until an infected person has had the virus for a few weeks.

Symptoms may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Abdominal pain or discomfort, especially in the area of your liver on your right side beneath your lower ribs
  • Clay-colored bowel movements
  • Loss of appetite
  • Low-grade fever
  • Dark urine
  • Joint pain
  • Yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice)

If you've been exposed to hepatitis A, having a hepatitis A vaccine or immunoglobulin therapy within two weeks of exposure may protect you from infection, according to Mayo Clinic.
