Lounge Alert! Olive Garden REALLY makes 250 people sick in Indiana
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20061215/ts_nm/olivegarden_i...

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.

Some customers who ate at the Olive Garden restaurant in northeast Indianapolis between December 9 and December 13 have reported nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and in some cases fever, said John Althardt, a spokesman for the Marion County Health Department.

Three of those people have been hospitalized.

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.

A spokesman for Olive Garden parent Darden Restaurants Inc. was not immediately available for comment.

4. You got that right!
Fake Italian cuisine is precise. I lived in Italy for 2 years, and transferred back to the States this summer. I can say for sure that Olive Garden is definitely fake Italian food!

8. Not so hard to do, actually.
All good, genuine ethnic food is peasant food.

5. Do you think anyone is stupid enough to expect real Italian cuisine?
I don't expect a good taco at Taco Bell. It's cheap and fills me up. What is your favorite beer/wine?
