Chipotle Mexican Grill is experiencing its second outbreak of the week, this one at La Mesa, CA involving Hepatitis A.   Fox 6 News reports:

The San Diego Health and Human Services Agency and County Department of Environmental Health are investigating six cases of Hepatitis A linked to a La Mesa Chipotle restaurant.

The county is recommending individuals who dined at the restaurant between March and April 22, 2008, and may see symptoms of Hepatitis A, to see their physicians for screenings.


Hepatitis A is a vaccine-preventable illness, according to health officers, and the public is urged to talk to their physicians about getting vaccinated

The other Chipotle outbreak has made more than 400 people sick in Kent, Ohio.  Go here for more on the Southern California outbreak.
