Hepatitis A confirmed at Taylor Kroger store

More than 700 cases of Hepititis A have been confirmed in Michigan in recent months, with more than 550 people hospitalized and 22 deaths resulting from those cases.

The most recent confirmed case was at the Kroger, 7000 Monroe Boulevard in Taylor.

It is unclear if it was an employee or a customer who first brought the disease into the store, but the store has since been cleaned. Employees worked with the Wayne County Department of Health to ensure that the store was safe for workers and customers alike.

Wayne County officials are urging anyone who shopped at the Kroger recently to watch for abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dark urine, clay-colored stool, fever, chills, yellow skin and eyes, all of which are symptoms of the illness. Symptoms typically show up between 15 and 50 days of contact.
