Lubbock Cheddar’s Linked to Hepatitis A Scare

Lubbock City health officials Tuesday night warned anyone who ate at Cheddar’s Casual Cafe earlier this month they may have been exposed to hepatitis A after an employee there was diagnosed with the viral disease.

Diners who ate at the restaurant at 4009 S. Loop 289 from Aug. 31 through Sept. 8 may have been exposed, said Lubbock Health Director Bridget Faulkenberry.

The employee, who worked in food preparation, has not worked at the restaurant since Sept. 8, Faulkenberry said.

Meanwhile, the city is working to obtain vaccine to offer anyone who patronized the restaurant during that period. Information about immunization clinics will be announced when the vaccine is available.
