    Michigan officials made an urgent appeal Thursday for anyone who has eaten baked goods from a specific Meijer grocery store to immediately seek medical attention because an employee there has been confirmed with a hepatitis A infection.

    Check your pantries
    State officials are concerned that people may have unconsumed bakery products from the Mt. Pleasant Meijer store, which could spread the virus if eaten or handled.

    Poor Michigan.  If it's not lead in the water it's Hep A in the bread :(

    Rings R Us....  You call it poop ?????   Maybe the local media doesn't care about it's citizens...  They never did anything about the toxic water situation...  Never did anything about the corrupt government....   Aren't doing anything about the Hep A contamination in the food supply....  

    You seem to be the "Nay-Sayer" on the forum, from your posts I have read....   Maybe you drank too much of the water  ???  Food for thought ??

    Takes a "back water guy", like myself, to inform you of stuff happening in your community... 

    There is a block button....   Mouse over "DaveOmak" in the upper left corner of my post.....   Click on the "block member" option...  Then you won't have to read what I put on the forum..  and stick to your local "news"....

    Regards, Dave

    Thanks Dave. Hep A can be passed easily and while generally does not make a healthy middle aged adult sick, is dangerous for the very young and old. I worked health care feeding seniors in a retirement facility/hospital. All the kitchen staff had to get blood tests and be vaccinated against all variations of hepatitus...JJ

    Rings may want to do a little more research. 

    Thanks Dave for sharing the info.

    The virus is primarily spread when an uninfected (and unvaccinated) person ingests food or water that is contaminated with the faeces of an infected person. The disease is closely associated with unsafe water or food, inadequate sanitation and poor personal hygiene.

    I'm quite aware of how it's transmitted.

    I'm simply telling everyone ..

    It's just not being spread here in our local news. This Hep A story.
    Sorry Dave. That's all I'm saying.

    I'm quite aware of its causes And what the disease attacks..how it's cured and mostly how it's transmitted. It kind of turns my stomach to hear stories of people in food service not adhering to safety protocols.. saying poop isn't meant to say your news is any less appreciated.
    👍

    Not sure what local news you're reading or watching Rings, but here's a small sample over the past couple days.

    They have had outbreaks closer to Detroit on tv. It's more of a drug users spreading it kind of thing mostly. Every once and a while they find a restaurant worker has hep and they will report it..

    I dont think Rings meant the alert was poop, rather "more poop on food" leading to cobtaminated food.

    Yes.. I didn't mean "oh another Dave poop alert" thread..

    I meant "Not another incident" of some unclean person.. Lol I don't mind the news.. it's appreciated. Just that yucky image comes creeping into mind.
