The Times of San Diego reported that two months after a norovirus outbreak at Bali Hai restaurant, county health officials have fingered ice as the foodborne source that sickened at least 61 people — including three in a wedding party, said Workman.
In its final report the county said 84 of the 172 people at the July 29 banquet returned surveys on what they ate and other issues. Fifty were sickened by the norovirus type GI.1. (Eight others also reported getting ill.)
“We have to [classify it as] food poisoning,” Workman said, rather than a sick person spreading the gastrointestinal disease.
