Golden Corral makes 167 Sick


A Golden Corral restaurant in Casper, Wyo., just made 167 people sick to their stomachs. And to clarify, this is allegedly due to food poisoning, rather than the chain’s food being generally gross (it’s an easy mistake to make).

The budget steakhouse and buffet restaurant closed for “cleaning” on Thursday, as the Centers for Disease Control reported that sick diners’ symptoms indicated a norovirus, spread by contaminated food, water, or serving surfaces. Golden Corral’s current motto is “Help Yourself to Happiness,” although “Steer Clear for a While to Avoid Tummy and/or Butt Explosions” may be a more accurate slogan in Wyoming today.
