Officials think that up to 2,000 customers may be affected.

Any customers who are fully vaccinated with two doses against hepatitis A are also not at any health risk, officials said.

For people who visited the 7-Eleven branch during the time period and are at risk of hepatitis A infection following the above guidelines are recommended to contact the Salt Lake County Health Department to receive an injection against the virus.

The Salt Lake County Health Department believes the case is linked to the ongoing hepatitis A outbreak the county's homeless population has been experiencing since August 2017.

7-Eleven didn't respond to a request from CSD for a comment on the situation, or the course of action the company is now pursuing.

The 7-Eleven in question has been "cooperating fully" with the health department's investigation, and since the possible exposure was discovered the store has been sanitized in accordance with health department recommendations. Health department staff will screen callers and give them options for getting the vaccination.

Here's what the CDC says about hepatitis A. Outbreaks through food or water are uncommon in the United States, but they can occur when food handlers have the virus. The virus is especially hard to kill and can live for months outside the body, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although rare, hepatitis A can cause death in some people.

Most people who get hepatitis A feel sick for several weeks, but they usually recover completely and do not have lasting liver damage.
