Food Safety Summit Food not Safe

According to Food Safety News website, 216 people who attended a Food Safety Summit in Baltimore this past spring were poisoned by the food served at that summit.

The report that was just released by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has determined that it was the chicken that was contaminated with Clostridium perfringens. Those who ate the chicken ended up with symptoms that ranged from diarrhea, cramps, nausea and vomiting.

While, in defense of the Food Safety Summit, this is the first time in its 16-year history anyone has contracted food poisoning, this incident is, nonetheless the definition of irony.
