Suspected outbreak of O-157 sickens 11

Suspected outbreak (発生、突発) of O-157 sickens 11

Eleven people may have contracted food poisoning after dining at Pepper Lunch steak restaurants in Tokyo and Saitama, Osaka, Nara, Yamaguchi and Ehime prefectures, local governments said Saturday.

The operator of the chain, Pepper Food Service Co., said Saturday that nine diners may have gotten sick.

But two more cases were reported to the Yamaguchi Prefectural Government after the announcement, bringing the total number of suspected cases to 11.

The Yamaguchi government said earlier in the day that four diners had been hit by the O-157 strain of E. coli (大腸菌株) bacteria after eating steak at a local Pepper Lunch branch on Aug. 23 or 24.

All four are reportedly recovering.

The prefectural government then ordered the restaurant to close for three days.

Pepper Food President Kunio Ichinose apologized and said there is a strong possibility the chain's diced beefsteak (サイコロステーキ) caused the poisonings.

In Tokyo, the metropolitan government said a woman was sickened by O-157 bacteria after eating at a Pepper Lunch in the capital in mid-August.
