The Food Safety Summit held in Baltimore in April has seen at least 100 of its 1,300 attendees sickened with the symptoms of food poisoning.
1,300 of the country's top food safety officers attended the conference at the Baltimore Convention Center between April 8 to 10. Since then, Maryland health officials have heard back from 400 attendees, 100 of whom have suffered gastroenteritis with symptoms of diarrhea and vomiting. The actual toll may be higher.
