Bartaco Hepatitis A Outbreak and Litigation
In October, the Westchester County Department of Health announced a Hepatitis A outbreak linked to Bartaco restaurant in Port Chester New York. In total, four customers and one employee contracted the disease and over 3,000 received preventative treatment from the health department. Marler Clark filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of over 400 people. The “shot class” includes all persons who were exposed to the hepatitis A virus as a direct result of either their consumption of food that was manufactured and sold by Bartaco, or their exposure to persons who were infected with the hepatitis A virus after consuming hepatitis A contaminated food at Bartaco.
Additionally, Marler Clark represents 3 other individuals who tested positive for Hepatitis A.
