Health officials warn of hepatitis A at Union Station kiosk

TORONTO – Health officials in Toronto are warning the public they may have been exposed to hepatitis A if they ate at a Union Station food kiosk.

Toronto Public Health says anyone who consumed food or beverages at the Calii Love kiosk between May 14 and 29, and on June 8 and 9, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. may have been exposed.

The agency says an employee of the restaurant has a confirmed case of hepatitis A that was likely acquired during travel to another country.

While the risk of getting the infection through consuming food from the kiosk is low, it says people who visited this restaurant during those dates and times should watch for signs and symptoms of hepatitis A.

Toronto Public Health says it will be holding free hepatitis A vaccination clinics for anyone who ate at the restaurant during those dates and times.

Symptoms can begin 15 to 50 days after becoming infected and include fever, tiredness, loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting, dark urine, stomach pains and jaundice.
