According to the Honolulu Advertiser, Sekiya’s Restaurant in Kaimuki has been cleared to resume operations after it dumped all its food and disinfected the restaurant from top to bottom following the worst outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 in the state’s history. The state Department of Health reinstated Sekiya’s permit to conduct food service operations after it passed its final inspection last night, health officials said today. Health officials said the restaurant completed an "intensive mitigation plan" after it was told its permit would be suspended on Feb. 23. Seven people who had eaten at Sekiya’s came down with E. coli O157:H7 since December.
