Springfield, Missouri Health officials say as many as 5,000 people could have been exposed to hepatitis A while dining at a Red Robin restaurant after a worker was tested positive for the virus.


Typically, hepatitis A is spread from the feces of an infected person to some food or drink that another person consumes.

“Upon being informed of the incident, the Springfield Red Robin took all safety measures to ensure the wellbeing of our guests and team members including arranging the inoculation of all Springfield team members with the immune globulin prophylaxis shot,” Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (RRGB) officials said in a statement.source

A report on Tuesday says state and federal officials are trying to get enough vaccine shipped so people who went to the restaurant May 8 to 16 can be immunized.

The goal is to get as many customers vaccinated within 14 days of their possible exposure, officials said Wednesday. Otherwise, the shot won’t work, so they’ve set up clinics through the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
