Health Department: This Time It's Personal
LINDA WERTHEIMER, Host:
Good morning, I'm Linda Wertheimer. Investigating food poisoning cases is just part of the job for the Illinois health department, but the Lawrence County branch had a personal stake in a recent case. They had a Christmas party with buffet at a local hangout last week. At least 40 people got a bellyache, while the rest of the staff searched for the cause. The culprit? Most likely Christmas ham. The restaurant's still closed. It's Morning Edition.
