According to press reports, the Kane County Illinois Health Department is investigating reports of possible food poisoning among people who ate at the Grumpy Goat Tavern in Elgin, Illinois.
Seventeen people have reported suffering from “gastrointestinal disorders” after eating at the restaurant at The Highlands of Elgin golf course Saturday, as part of a golf outing, health department spokesman Tom Schlueter said.
“There’s a possible food-borne outbreak in Elgin, and we’re doing what we call ‘food investigation,’ and finding out what people ate and when they ate, and if they feel sick or if they’re not feeling sick,” he said.
Grumpy Goat Tavern owner Greg Shannon said he was aware of the situation. “The health department is handling everything — both the city’s health department and the Kane County Health Department,” he said.
