MECKLENBURG, N.C. -- A Mecklenburg County woman is suing Papa John's for their involvement in an Hepatitis A scare that put thousands of customers at risk.

According to court documents, she's suing the restaurant on Cambridge Commons Drive on her own behalf, but is reserving the right to become a class-action suit.

More than 2,000 people received Hepatitis A vaccines in Mecklenburg and Cabarrus counties, after one of the employees was exposed to the disease during an overseas trip.

The woman who filed the suit did not get sick.
