Pep Boys - PepBoys Auto manager failed to address a bloodborne pathogens issue at his store in Tyler, Tx
On 5/19/2008 at 5:30 pm I was exposed to fresh human blood that was on the checkout counter at PepBoys Auto 3616 S. Broadway, Tyler, TX 75711. The cashier admitted that she was aware that the blood was there, but made no attempt to have it cleaned up prior to me putting my hand in it.
The manager, Kevin Swallow, denied any responsibility for my safety as a customer in his store. I told him of the possibility of being infected with hepatitis C or HIV, and that I wanted to be tested and treated at his company's expense. He became beligerant with me, directed his employees not to talk to me, and then ordered me to leave the store under threats.
I contacted CDC, and the Smith County Health Department, but they offered me no help.
Now I am depressed and every time I leave my home I wear latex free nitril gloves due to my paranoia.
Can anyone help?
