This story popped up and you have to wonder if the woman in the center of it will be forbidden to do anymore cooking. Confession time, I'm paranoid about food poisoning, I obsess over temperature, how long something has sat out, how old are the leftovers. As soon as we're finished eating, I am quickly getting what's left in the fridge. Two days in there is long enough before it's tossed. So this story is my worst nightmare.
"A family in the northern province of Tekirdağ is once again recovering from food poisoning, after a dinner party they threw to show gratitude to God for helping them get over their earlier illness not only made them sick, but their guests as well."
25 Members of this extended family spent a week in the hospital with food poisoning after the first dinner. Then: "Upon returning home they decided to hold a “gratitude dinner” with their neighbors for recovering their health, as well to get over the negative incident they had experienced. They sacrificed an animal to God and invited their neighbors over for dinner.
However, the family started to suffer from the same symptoms, as did the neighbors who attended the dinner.
A total of 25 people were hospitalized for food poisoning, 21 of whom were discharged from the hospital after receiving treatment."
The woman of the family who had done the cooking both times said, "that she would be more careful about preserving food. She also said they had become more selective of their food after the incidents."
For sure. And, maybe someone else should take over the duty.
