Health officials say they are working to contain a possible outbreak of Hepatitis A linked to a restaurant in New Orleans.

According to a bulletin sent out yesterday, the state Department of Health says the infection appears to have come from an incident at Galatoire's restaurant back in mid-August.

Galatoire's released a statement saying their facility has since passed an inspection by state authorities and they are working to vaccinate all employees.

Hepatitis A is a liver infection spread by ingesting infected food and can cause intestinal issues and vomiting.
