The food poisoning outbreak at Golden Ponds restaurant in Greece, New York on Thanksgiving Day this year has sickened at least 260 people, according to the Democrat and Chronicle. The restaurant, located at 500 Long Pond Road, was closed on November 25, 2016 after reports of illness began coming into the Monroe County Health Department.
Lab tests on stool samples and food samples have not been completed. The New York State Department of Health laboratory in Albany is conducting the tests.
According to the paper, Monroe County Health Department spokesman John Ricci said that more than 80 people contacted officials about getting sick after eating at the restaurant. Those 80 people reported the illnesses of others who dined with them, bringing the total up. Ricci said, “the vast, vast majority, without prompting, report nearly identical symptoms.”
