Deli Coleslaw Blamed in Hepatitis Outbreak

September 24, 1997| Associated Press

PONTIAC, Mich. — Coleslaw from a popular deli is blamed for a hepatitis outbreak that left one man dead, officials said Tuesday.

How the hepatitis A virus got into the slaw remained unclear, and the investigation was continuing, county executive L. Brooks Patterson said.

At least 43 cases of hepatitis have been confirmed, including a 67-year-old man who died. The victims were exposed in August, so the threat of new cases developing now is over, Patterson said.

The Stage and Co. Deli in West Bloomfield Township bought shredded cabbage and added a sauce prepared at the deli, said owner Steven Goldberg.
