FOOD SAFETY
(2007-06-21)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Bipartisan bills introduced today in the
Michigan Legislature would tighten food safety rules that came
under scrutiny when diners got sick from norovirus outbreaks at
restaurants.
The legislation would put model federal food safety guidelines
into state law. One change include requiring restaurants to have at
least one manager who has passed an accredited food safety exam.
Lawmakers also want to clarify when ill restaurant employees can
return to work.
In December, at least 52 people got sick from norovirus after
eating food catered by a popular Ann Arbor restaurant.
Lansing-area diners became sick from norovirus last years at
Applebee's, Bravo Cucina Italiana and Carrabba's Italian Grill.
