According to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, more than 260 people have been sickened by a Thanksgiving dinner at a popular Greece restaurant and party house, which is quite likely the largest recent outbreak of foodborne illness in Monroe County.
Health Department inspectors closed Golden Ponds Restaurant and Party House restaurant at 500 Long Pond Road in Greece on Nov. 25 after many people reported becoming ill after eating Thanksgiving dinner there. The department is now awaiting the results of laboratory tests on both stool and food samples that were sent to the New York State Department of Health for testing in its laboratory in Albany.
More than 80 people have spoken to the Monroe County Health Department about becoming ill after eating at Golden Ponds on Thanksgiving, said spokesman John Ricci. Those people reported the illnesses of others within their party, bringing the total to more than 260.
