Hardee’s has issued a response to the possible of exposure of customers at two Spartanburg Co. restaurants.

“Hardee¹s takes the health of its guests and employees very seriously. We
are working closely with the appropriate authorities to ensure the health
and safety of all our customers and employees,” said Kate Franklin of Coast Public Relations.

The two locations and dates are:

12209 Highway 29 in Lyman and involves the dates between Aug. 31 and Sept. 15, 2015.

1397 E. Main St. in Duncan and involves the dates between Sept. 1 and Sept. 13, 2015.

For customers and staff who ate at either of these restaurants between Sep. 6 and 15, there is still time to get post-exposure treatment (the vaccine).

This first date will change daily (for e.g., for Monday, it will be Sep. 7 and 15) to reflect the 2 week post-exposure treatment window.

For these people who are still within the 14-day window, we are urging them to come go to clinics at the Spartanburg and Greenville County Health Departments to get free post-exposure treatment quickly.

Customers and staff who ate at these restaurants between Aug. 31 and Sept. 5 are not likely to benefit from post-exposure treatment, because vaccine is of no proven benefit when administered more than 14 days after exposure.

They say anyone who ate at one these Hardee’s restaurants between these dates (Aug. 31 and Sept. 5) should watch for symptoms of infection, such as nausea, vomiting, and jaundice, which would cause yellowing of the eyes and skin, and seek medical care if symptoms develop.
