MICHELIN STAR RESTAURANT IN VALENCIA, SPAIN KILLS ONE, 29 OTHERS WITH FOOD POISONING
So when you go to a Michelin Star restaurant like RiFF in Valencia, Spain, you don’t think it will kill you. But that’s exactly what happened to a 46-year-old woman who ate there with her husband and 12-year-old son. But they were not alone. 28 other people became very sick after eating at RiFF as well. This poor woman ate there last Saturday and died early Sunday morning. Her husband and son were also sick. They had violent diarrhea and vomiting. But what could possibly have caused these illnesses and her death? It is a Michelin Star restaurant, after all.
MOTHER DEAD, HUSBAND AND SON SURVIVE DRAMATIC FOOD POISONING
RiFF offers creative food and cooking. The restaurant, per its own advertising, “conjures up innovative cuisine.” But after the woman died, officials started investigating to find out the cause. They managed to track down 75 people who ate there from February 13-16. That’s how they learned that 29 of them also had food poisoning. Those people included 3 families. But so far the cause remains a mystery. Some have reported that it might be the morel mushrooms the restaurant regularly serves. But the officials made sure to tell local media that they still didn’t have any test results. So it is still too soon to identify any particular ingredient as the killer.
RESTAURANT WILL REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL INVESTIGATION IDENTIFIES INGREDIENT OF DEATH
As for RiFF, they are very concerned. RiFF’s owner and head chef is Bernd Knöller. He releases a statement which read, “Regardless of the reason that may have caused this situation, I want to convey my deep regret for what happened, hoping that soon all these facts can be clarified.” So for now the Michelin Star restaurant will stay closed “until the causes of what happened are established.” So be careful out there. You never know what could be a danger to your health, or your life.
