(Sandy-AP) -- The state's largest school district is pulling green onions from the menus.
That's because of an F-D-A warning about scallions.
The advisory issued last weekend says Hepatitis A outbreaks in Pennsylvania may be associated with raw or lightly cooked green onions.
The Jordan School District says they feed 40-thousand students a day so they'd rather play it safe and avoid the onions until the F-D-A assures them they're okay.
So far Utah has no cases of Hepatitis-A.
The outbreak in Pittsburgh killed three people and sickened more than 500.
Hepatitis-A is a virus that attacks the liver, causing flu-like symptoms including fever, nausea, diarrhea, fatigue and abdominal pain.
