The Taste of Chicago has been around for more than two decades. Dozens and dozens of local restaurants set up tents in Grant Park to feed a million or two people early in July. There's never been a problem with the food making people sick in all the years it's been around.
Until this summer.
It started with a dose of salmonella knocking out about twelve people. And now we're up to over three hundred. The only thing everybody had in common was the booth that sold Persian Cuisine. Persia is the secret word for IRAN.
It's looking like the hummus may have been bad.
The problem isn't that the hummus was made at the restaurant. The problem is that the hummus was provided by a supplier, who brought it in from another country. Such as IRAN.
