LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A false story perpetuated by an online website is using the WDRB name and logo in an effort to provide legitimacy to its claims.

The story falsely claims that a Walmart store in La Grange, Kentucky, is shutting down due to a hepatitis A outbreak. The story is false. WDRB News has no affiliation with the story or the originators of the story. The false post is being shared on social media using WDRB's name and logo in an intentional effort to be deceptive.

WDRB is investigating the source of the story and pursuing legal options.

If the story is encountered anywhere online -- particularly on social media -- please refrain from sharing the story.
