From the pages of this morning’s Baltimore Sun:
A Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in eastern Baltimore County, where members of a family say they dined Saturday before becoming ill, was closed yesterday by county restaurant inspectors.
The inspectors were following up on a report that three children and a woman were hospitalized Sunday after dining at the restaurant in the 8300 block of Eastern Ave., said David A.C. Carroll, head of the county’s Department of Environmental Protection and Resource Management.
During the visit, Carroll said, an employee reported having recently experienced diarrhea. Inspectors also found that the employee — a food preparation worker — had a 2-year-old in the kitchen, who was experiencing diarrhea. The child’s presence was a health violation, Carroll said – REALLY?
