Did you have any pre-chopped, ready-to-eat fruit from the Westside Market at 2589 Broadway between August 9 and 22? If so, start reading: A case of hepatitis A was reported in a food handler at the market, so the Health Department is now warning anyone who ate at the shop to get a hep A vaccination shot. Fortunately, the DOH says no cases have been reported in customers, but they’re nevertheless not taking any changes, so the department is offering free vaccinations today through Monday. Details on that are right here. [NYCDOH, NYP]
