STONY BROOK, N.Y., Sept. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- National Food Poisoning Lawyer Jory Lange is investigating the Kumo Sushi & Steakhouse Food Poisoning Outbreak. The restaurant was issued 15 violations after 28 people got food poisoning on Saturday. 12 people were rushed to the Emergency Room at Stony Brook University Hospital.
"The scary thing about this outbreak is, as a consumer, there's nothing you can do to tell whether the food that you are buying is safe. You can't taste, smell, or see food poisoning. Food that is contaminated may look, smell, and taste just like any other food. This is why it's critical that restaurants who make and sell our food, ensure the food is safe before they sell it," said Food Poisoning Lawyer Jory Lange.
About the Kumo Sushi & Steakhouse Food Poisoning Outbreak
The Suffolk Department of Health Services is investigating Kumo Sushi & Steakhouse. The food poisoning outbreak may have been caused by "mishandled and improperly stored cooked rice that was served" on Saturday afternoon, said Marykate Guilfoyle, Suffolk County's spokesperson.
The health department issued 15 violations to the restaurant on Nesconset Highway, said Guilfoyle, including eight violations for foodborne illness risk factors. "Twelve people were taken to Stony Brook Hospital," Guilfoyle said.
