By Brian Schultz

Tim HortonsBesides having to worry about swine flu, some Tim Hortons customers in New Market, Ontario now have to be on the lookout for signs of hepatitis A. “Would you like hep A with your double-double?”

The chief medical officer in the area says customers may have been exposed to hepatitis A if they consumed food from an establishment on Yonge Street between Thursday, April 2 and Wednesday, April 22, 2009.

Two employees tested positive for the virus.

Health inspectors say the risk of infection for customers is low but they’re taking preventive steps.
