    Health officials say people who went to a West Jordan, Utah 7-Eleven within the past two weeks might have been exposed to hepatitis A.

    An employee worked at the store between Dec. 26 and Jan. 3 while ill and potentially handled certain items in the store, the officials said, estimating that up to 2,000 customers could be affected.

    Anyone who used the store's restrooms is asked to contact the health department immediately for information on receiving a vaccine.

    Officials also ask customers who consumed the store's fresh fruit, fountain drinks or other self-serve items to contact the department.

    7-Eleven is cooperating with the health department's investigation and has sanitized the store, officials said.
