Sagebrush BBQ & Grill and Max & T’s Bar Linked to Hepatitis A Illness

HepatitisLawyer.jpgCustomers of two Grand Lake Colorado restaurants are being urged to get either immune globulin (IG) or hepatitis A shots following the discovery that a worker employed at both eateries has a case of hepatitis A. The two restaurants were identified as Sagebrush BBQ & Grill and Max & T’s Bar and Grill by the Grand County Public Health department. The health department said there are no other confirmed cases of hepatitis A at this time.

People should get the hepatitis A shots if they ate at Max & T’s between July 26 and July 30, or the Sagebrush between July 24 and Aug. 3. The patrons should receive the shots within 14 days from the date they ate at the restaurants.

Hepatitis A virus is spread as a result of fecal contamination. It may be spread from person to person through close contact or through food handling.

    Wow, my mom and I ate at the Sagebrush Bar and Grill on July 23rd. We thought the place was fabulous. Too bad this incident would give them bad PR because I thought they had great food and wonderful service. It’s a cool place because they still have the bars up from when the restaurant used to be a jail. People also throw peanut shells on the floor. Good fun.
    I still highly recommend the restaurant despite this episode. It’s very fun and the food is good.
