    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently been notified that an employee of a single Jamba Juice store in San Jose, California was recently diagnosed with hepatitis A. The food service worker also assisted with the preparation of fresh fruit smoothies for distribution at the booth of an exhibitor (JumpSport) at the 43rd Annual USA Gymnastics (USAG) National Congress and Trade Show held in conjunction with the 2007 Gymnastics National Championships, in San Jose, California. Attendees at the trade show and gymnastics competition were from a number of states and have since returned home.

    Because it is likely the employee followed good hand hygiene and food safety practices, the risk of exposure is small. However, persons exposed in the last 14 days can reduce their risk. Persons who may have been exposed include: Persons who ate or drank at the 1140 Lincoln Avenue San Jose, CA Jamba Juice on August 1-3, 6-9, 11, 13 and 15-16; Persons who drank fruit smoothies distributed from the JumpSport booth at the USAG trade show on August 16 and 17th.

    People who have had a hepatitis A vaccine or have had the illness in the past, are protected from hepatitis A infection. CDC recommends that persons who are not protected and are within 14 days of exposure contact their medical provider or their state or local health department to receive a dose of single antigen hepatitis A vaccine or immune globulin (IG).
