Nordstrom Café Employee May Have Infected Customers with Typhoid Fever

A Nordstrom Café employee at a mall in San Francisco came into contact with food while infected with typhoid fever.

A worker at a San Francisco Nordstrom Café may have infected customers with typhoid fever, according to the city's Department of Public Health. The worker who was diagnosed with typhoid fever came into contact with food served to customers multiple days.

Anyone who ate at the Nordstrom Café in the Stonestown Galleria on April 16, 17, 18, 20, or 27 could face infection.

"Unfortunately, symptoms of typhoid fever can resemble other illnesses," said Dr. Tomás J. Aragón, M.D., Health Officer for the City & County of San Francisco, in a Public Health release. "Persons who are at risk because they dined at the Stonestown Nordstrom Cafe on one of those dates should see a health care provider right away if they are feeling unwell, and should tell their physician that they may have been exposed to typhoid fever. There is testing and effective treatment available. If you suspect you have typhoid fever, do not prepare food or drink for anyone and do not care for young children, hospitalized patients, or persons with weakened immune systems."

The worker contracted the disease while traveling abroad. Typhoid affects 300 to 400 people in the United States each year, typically while they are traveling out of the country.
