Olive Garden is Making Us Sick Too!

Here we go again...

Three people have been hospitalized and more than 300 people claimed they became ill (nausea, vomiting, fever and diarrhea) after eating at an Indiana Olive Garden restaurant last weekend on Indianapolis' north side.

No word on the cause but so far health officials are sayings it is not E. coli which has wrecked havoc on Taco Bell's and Taco Johns' customers.

I'll let you know what happens but until then, since mainstream restaurants are making us sick, check out for great recipes so you can cook (and eat) at home.

Just so you guys know: Fingers are now pointing at Norovirus, which is a highly contagious gastrointestinal illness that causes vomiting and diarrhea.

Bleh, that place is grosso anyway. They charge $24 for a bottle of wine you can buy for $4 at Riteaid, just an fyi. That's no exaggeration. The only thing I eat there is the soup typically. Anything else I've ever ordered makes me feel sick later. I'm a pretty firm believer that classy restaurants don't come in chains. Also, has anyone noticed how Pizza Hut has tried to give themselves a makeover to look more hip? I don't think anyone thinks of wine and fine dining when they go out to a pizza joint. Nice try guys. Alright I'm done whining, carry on.

Well, if I'm meant to get sick, then oh well. The Olive Garden is my favorite restaurant, so I will continue to eat there. Especially since I don't live in Indiana, I highly doubt the one here will make me sick.

This is too funny. Last night me and my boyfriend went out to dinner and a movie, and we mentioned to a friend that we were going to Olive Garden. He told us about this news, and of course I was the skeptic, thinking since I hadn't heard anything confirming this fact it couldn't be true. Now I feel like a shmuck. I feel perfectly fine though, so I guess we picked a good branch, ha ha.

To be honest, I think this is a surge, i think it is peole realizing they don't have a virus because food making sick has been in the news lately. I had salmonella poisening from Olive has flu like systems. I am a certified food health manager (or something like that) in the state I am in so I realized it wasn't the flu or a virus...most food borne illnesses have flu like systems, invlucinf fever, naseau, diarrhea, stomach cramps, etc... so a majority of the time people think they have a virus when really it is some type of food poisoning or food bourne happens way more often than you would think....and what I am telling you I learned 4 years ago... I'm all in.

I got food poisoning from Olive Garden one snowy night...i guess they were in a hurry and they under cooked my stuffed chicken...since it was stuffed with cheese ic ouldn't tell...well, I couldn't even hold down gatorade after taking naseau pills for 2 days...I can't even walk in the door to that restaurant anymore. I haven't eaten there in 3 years, which sucks cause its my boyf's fav restaurant... I'm all in.
