With thanks to [personal profile] digitalsidhe for the heads-up: A restaurant worker at the Nordstrom Café in Stonestown Galleria has been diagnosed with typhoid fever, probably acquired during a trip outside the US.

Anyone who ate at the Nordstrom Cafe within the Nordstrom store in the Stonestown Galleria in San Francisco on April 16, 17, 18, 20, or 27, 2013 may be at risk. Health officials advise these individuals to see a healthcare provider right away if they start to experience symptoms such as fever, weakness, stomach pains, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of appetite. In some cases a rash of flat, rose-colored spots may appear. Symptoms usually begin within 8 to 14 days after exposure, but could potentially appear for up to 30 days.

For more information, see this press release (in PDF form) from the SF Department of Public Health.
