Sick :: 250 sick after eating at Indiana Olive Garden in Indianapolis

More than 250 people have reported becoming sick after eating at an Olive Garden restaurant in Indianapolis, Indiana, a county health official said on friday, a day after an outbreak of E.coli at Taco Bell restaurants was declared over.

The news makes Olive Garden at least the third U.S. restaurant chain this month to be linked to widespread customer illnesses.

“At this point we’re continuing to gather information,” Marion County Health Department spokesman John T. Althardt said. “We’re trying to isolate what the cause of the illnesses might be.”

Tests of the sick peoples’ stool and leftovers they took home from the restaurant will be conducted later today or Monday, Althardt said. He added that the tests would take about 48 hours.
