Ironically, it was only just a few weeks ago that patrons experienced the exact same symptoms after eating.  However, no food safety violations were found so the restaurant remained open.

The latest occurrence sent approximately 20 people to the emergency room after experiencing sweating, nausea and vomiting.  As yet, there has been no definitive answer given as to what caused the illnesses.

Current speculation is that the copper plumbing lines containing carbonated water may have been contaminated and subsequently caused the problem. Investigations are now underway by the Kansas Department of Health to determine the exact root of the problem.  However, for now, the restaurant will remain closed until clearance has been given that the restaurant is a safe establishment to dine in.
