Description:
n May 2013, a European alert was issued regarding a hepatitis A virus (HAV) outbreak in Italy. In June 2013, HAV subgenotype IA with an identical sequence was identified in Ireland in three cases who had not trav - elled to Italy. The investigation consisted of descriptive epidemiology, a case–control study, microbiologi - cal testing of human and food specimens, molecular typing of positive specimens and food traceback. We identified 21 outbreak cases (14 confirmed primary cases) with symptom onset between 31 January and 11 October 2013. For the case–control study, we recruited 11 confirmed primary cases and 42 matched controls.
