s

Between June 18 and July 18, 1988, there were 32 cases of hepatitis in Peters Creek, Alaska. Twenty-three additional individuals contracted the disease after exposure to family members who had been initially infected. Those infected initially were interviewed to find possible reservoirs of infection. All 32 were found to have consumed an ice-slush beverage purchased from a local convenience market between May 23 and June 10. Further investigation revealed that one of the employees who prepared the ice-slush mixture had serologically-confirmed hepatitis.
