A Bunch Of People Got Food Poisoning At A Food Safety Meeting

Last month, there was a U.S. food safety summit in Maryland where people from the government and the food industry came together to discuss how to make food safer, and less likely to make us sick.
Apparently, you need to avoid food safety
conferences if you want to avoid food

The only problem was, many of the people who ate lunch at the food safety summit came down with food poisoning. 

As many as 400 of the 1,300 people who attended the conference got sick.

Health officials are still trying to determine which food at the conference made people ill.

The food service provider, Centerplate, was cited for one minor violation, so it doesn't exactly look as if  Typhoid Mary was the lead cook at the ill-fated food summit.

The bottom line: If you don't want to get sick from food, don't go to a food safety conference.
