(Easthampton, MA) – Health officials believe it was a mistake when a restaurant worker in Easthampton put a powdered chemical cleaner in some food, believing it was grated cheese. The city’s health agent Jackie Duda says a teenage customer who ate the food got sick but is doing fine now. Duda says she’s met with the owners of Riff’s Joint and says while they haven’t been able to pin down exactly who was responsible, she is confident they’ve rectified the protocol problem that led to the poisoning.
