Famous Anthony’s Restaurant files Bankruptcy after Hepatitis A employee sickens 52, hospitalizing 36 and killing 4

My guess is that Famous Anthony’s wishes it would have vaccinated its employees against hepatitis A instead.

Roanoke Times reports that owners of Famous Anthony’s filed bankruptcy Monday at two of their Roanoke locations after a hepatitis A outbreak originating from one of their employees killed four people and hospitalized more than 35 and sickened 52

Attorney Andrew Goldstein said the chapter 11 filing allows the company to reorganize and remain open. In 90 days, the company will submit a plan outlining a payment schedule for the people who have claims against the restaurant.

Seattle food law attorney Bill Marler currently represents more than two dozen people who were sickened from or died in the Famous Anthony’s outbreak last fall.

An employee who worked at three locations — Grandin Road Extension, Williamson Road and Crystal Spring Avenue — tested positive for the virus. Throughout September and October, more than 50 cases were confirmed to be connected to the outbreak. The Crystal Spring location closed and the owners have filed bankruptcy on the remaining two restaurants involved.

Goldstein said the bankruptcy will help preserve jobs for the restaurant’s employees and allow the company to continue conducting business to meet the obligations it has to those affected by the outbreak.
