Hepatitis A is a contagious virus that can cause liver disease. A Hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection can range in severity from a mild, lasting a few weeks to severe, lasting several months. In rare cases, for anyone who's immune is compromised, Hepatitis A infections can progress to liver failure. Illness usually occurs within 15 to 50 days after eating or drinking contaminated food or water.
Hepatitis A Symptoms:

In some instances, particularly in children under the age of six, Hepatitis A infection may be asymptomatic. Anyone who may have eaten the affected product should consult their health care provider to determine if a vaccination is appropriate.
