Health officials on Thursday warned of possible hepatitis A exposure at Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen in Jonesboro.

The Arkansas Department of Health said anyone who dined at the restaurant at 2123 Stadium Boulevard on Dec. 22 and Dec. 23 should immediately seek care if they develop symptoms of the contagious liver disease. Symptoms include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and dark-colored urine.

Since February, 250 cases of the disease have been reported as part of an outbreak in northeast Arkansas, according to the state Department of Health. Two people have died.

A possible hepatitis A exposure was reported last week at an On the Border restaurant in Jonesboro.
