    Health officials warn anyone who ate or drank there on Dec. 12-15 or Dec. 19 might have been exposed to the infectious disease.

    So far, no cases of hepatitis A have been linked to the infected food handler, who is currently restricted from work until no longer contagious.

    According to a release from the San Francisco Department of Public Health, anyone who eats food that has been handled by someone who is infected could be at risk.
