Oh, The Irony: Over 100 Fall Ill From Food Poisoning at Food Safety Summit

The culprit that caused over 100 participants in a food safety summit in Maryland to get really sick earlier this month has finally been identified: food poisoning. The attendees included representatives from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the CDC, McDonald’s Corp, Tyson Foods Inc and ConAgra Foods Inc.

The event took place April 8-10 in Baltimore and had about 1,300 attendees total, reports Yahoo News. The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said, “We are working on evaluating possible exposures and doing testing at the Maryland state public health laboratory to attempt to identify an agent.”

The catering company for the event, Centerplate, and the venue were both inspected by health officials. The only violation found was dripping condensation from an ice machine at Centerplate’s facilities.
