HAWAII FREE PRESS

Since June 12, 2016, Hawaii has been experiencing a hepatitis A outbreak. This indeed is a food safety issue that the Hawaii Department of Health has been trying to solve. Some 206 cases have been reported and the source has been found, frozen scallops from the Philippines.
Since June, there has been no peep from the Hawaii Center for Food Safety or its parent group, the Center for Food Safety, warning the public of this at all. Now if this were truly a food safety group, wouldn’t they be focused on this very real issue sickening people? Even more so, you’d think they’d even be helping people get information on where to get the hepatitis A vaccination also. None of this was ever posted on any of their media to notify the public. It wasn’t until this past Wednesday that they actually posted that comment on their Facebook page.
So what prompted them to address the issue nearly 2 months late?
