Slovak Legion kitchen open again after food sickness

The Thunder Bay District Health Unit is waiting on lab results to determine what caused 37 people to get sick from a meal at the Slovak Legion on Tuesday. The Health Unit has narrowed it down to one food, and is just waiting on the lab results for confirmation. The food in question has been removed from the kitchen. The Legion was fined as a result of the outbreak. Manager of Environmental Health Chris Beveridge says the Health Unit believes it was an isolated incident and adds that the Slovak Legion runs a clean kitchen. If anyone suspects they have been affected by food-borne illness, they are encouraged to contact the Health Unit.
