Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.Fecal oral route results in hepatitis A or E and not B.Hepatitis B Is transmitted by parental routes( eg needle injury,injection-drug use,blood transfusions,sexual contact and from mother to infant).so feces contamination doesn't result in hepatitis B.Thanks and good luck.
