The bands My Chemical Romance and Muse were forced to cancel recent concerts when band and crew members became ill with food poisoning. Health officials investigating the incident conducted testing and determined that members were suffering from Salmonella poisoning. The investigation ultimately led to the determination that the Salmonella outbreak source was the Green Leafe Cafe in Williamsburg, Virginia.
According to a story at WDBJ7:
Peninsula Health Department officials are focusing their investigation on people who ate food from Williamsburg’s Green Leafe Cafe over the weekend of April 27th through the 29th. They’ve confirmed that the culprit is salmonella bacteria.
Members and crew of the two bands got sick after performing April 28th at the College of William and Mary. Members of a private wedding party and a William and Mary a cappella singing group also got sick.
