Restaurant Illnesses

More than 240 people sick from Colorado restaurant

At least 240 people are telling health officials they got sick after eating at a restaurant in Fort Collins, Colorado. The outbreak is so large that ten county employees have been assigned to the investigation.

People who ate at the Texas Roadhouse say they've been experiencing cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and other symptoms within 48 hours of their meals. The steak house is part of a national chain based in Louisville, Kentucky.

Health officials say the restaurant is closed temporarily and that the company has hired a private contractor to disinfect it. They say the virus appears to be the same one that sickened hundreds of people on a cruise ship docked in Alaska earlier this month.
