Case Summary

The plaintiffs, Cody Werkmeister and Sherri Young, acting on behalf of themselves and all those similarly situated, have asserted claims against the defendant Hardee’s Restaurants, LLC . The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) was notified on September 17, 2015, of individuals employed by and working at the defendant’s restaurants, who had tested positive for hepatitis A, and who had worked at the defendant’s restaurants during their hepatitis A infection. SCDHEC alerted the public about the health risks posed by potential exposure to hepatitis A, and recommended that customers and staff who ate food at the defendant’s restaurants between September 4 and September 15 at the Lyman-area restaurant and between September 4 and September 13 and the Duncan-area restaurant—should receive vaccine due to potential exposure to hepatitis A. SCDHEC held clinics to provide vaccines from September 19 to September 29, 2015. As a result of these clinics, over 4,800 individuals received vaccines for potential exposure to hepatitis A.

The plaintiff, on behalf of himself and all those similarly situated, seek to recover compensation from Hardee’s Restaurants, LLC, for All persons (1) who consumed food or drink between September 4 and September 13, 2015, at the Hardee’s Restaurant located in Duncan, South Carolina, or between September 4 and September 15, 2015, at the Hardee’s Restaurant located in Lyman, South Carolina, and (2) subsequently obtained an HAV vaccination, an IG shot, or HAV blood test within thirty days after eating at these Hardee’s Restaurant locations, but in no event later than October 15, 2015.

The compensation sought includes the cost of obtaining the shots, and the value of lost time required to obtain the shots.

The Defendants deny the Plaintiff’s allegations and claims in their entirety, but have agreed to settle the law to avoid the burdens and costs of litigation.
