Friendly's Hepatitis A Exposure

In June of 2004, a food worker at a Friendly’s restaurant in Arlington, Massachusetts was diagnosed with hepatitis A, a virus that can cause acute liver failure. Health officials estimated that more than 3,800 people were at risk for developing hepatitis A infection after dining at the restaurant.

Marler Clark filed a Class Action lawsuit against Friendly’s International on behalf of more than 1,500 persons who were required to get hepatitis A vaccinations following possible exposure to the virsus at a Friendly’s restaurant in Arlington, Mass. The Town of Arlington Board of Health issued a warning and call for people to receive shots after it was learned that an employee of the restaurant was infected with hepatitis A.
