UK Bakery shut amid link to hepatitis A outbreak reopens

May 5, 2017

A bakery that was closed after being linked to a hepatitis A outbreak has reopened after workers were tested for the virus.
NHS Lanarkshire launched an investigation into nine confirmed and nine suspected cases of the infection on Thursday.
The health board contacted JB Christie bakery in Airdrie as it stated iced cakes, decorated cakes and pastries made at the business could have been linked to the outbreak.
As a result of the probe, the firm closed on Friday and Saturday.
All staff at JB Christie have since been tested for the virus and have been given the all-clear, which enabled it to reopen on Tuesday.
