You can’t trust everybody’s potato salad…
Three people are left dead and five left sick after eating a Thanksgiving meal at the American Legion Hall in Antioch, California.
The dinner was hosted by Golden Hills Community Church for seniors and the homeless.
According to Buzzfeed, “the holiday dinner was held for people who would have been alone for Thanksgiving.”
“We recently were informed that several people from the same care facility in Antioch, who were at our Antioch Thanksgiving Dinner, became sick,” the church said in a statement. “We are fully cooperating with health officials and are praying fervently for the families who lost loved ones and for others who are sick.”
Sutter Delta hospital treated eight elderly people on Friday and Saturday who fell sick after the meal, possibly from a food borne illness, officials said. All of the victims lived in the same facility, so officials said it was not certain that the meal caused the victims to become ill but that it is believed to be the culprit.
