63 sickened at famous eatery
Danish food safety officials ordered a cleanup and better food handling at Noma, one of the world's top restaurants, after 63 people fell ill with vomiting and diarrhea from eating at the two-star Michelin eatery. The establishment has also hit the top spot three times on the world's best list in Restaurant magazine. The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration said Friday it had investigated the waterfront restaurant in Copenhagen after complaints from customers who had dined there during a week in February. It was not clear what food had caused the infection. Manager Peter Kreiner apologized and said the staff was trying to track the source of the infection.
