Papa John’s agrees to cover hepatitis A costs from corporate store
A North Carolina-based, company-owned Papa John’s location has been identified as the original source of a hepatitis A outbreak that happened in late March/early April. And, according to the Independent Tribune, Papa John’s International Inc. has agreed to cover the costs generated from the outbreak by the Cabarrus Health Alliance and the Mecklenburg County Health Department.
According to the story, customers of the Papa John’s Pizza location at 8016-B Cambridge Commons Drive, Charlotte, N.C., were exposed to hepatitis A by an infected employee. Subsequently, the Cabarrus Health Alliance requested nearly $23,000 from Papa John’s for vaccination reimbursement for 400 customers.
