Bob Chinn's Diners Fall Ill

bob-chinns-150.jpgAbout 50 people have fallen ill with flu-like symptoms after eating at Bob Chinn's Crab House. The Wheeling, Ill., restaurant serves about 800,000 people a year and is the nation's fourth busiest, so the number of sick people is expected to rise. The restaurant is not currently being blamed as the source of the breakout, but it did voluntarily close for cleaning and sanitation per the Cook County Department of Public Health. It is now open for business, but anyone with leftovers from the restaurant is encouraged to trash them. [Sun-Times]
