CNE illness list continues to grow
Public health officials now say at least 34 people have reported symptoms of foodborne illnesses at the Canadian National
Exhibition in Toronto.
Dr. Lisa Berger says Epic Burger and Waffles, which sells cronut burgers, will voluntarily remain closed as a precaution while health
officials continue their investigation.
Berger says tests are still required to determine if the cronut burger is the source of the illness that caused people to report vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps Tuesday night.
Paramedics treated 12 people who had symptoms of gastrointestinal illnesses. Five of those people were taken to hospital.
EMS officials haven't been able to say if those treated had eaten food from the same vendors.
Health officials are asking anyone who suffered a foodborne illness at the CNE to contact them.
