The Christmas buffet on the BBB ferry in Luleå made 75 people from five different companies sick in the past week, according to the local Norrbottens Kuriren newspaper.

This equates to one in three diners since last Tuesday.

"This is clearly food poisoning, I can say this much without even seeing the results from our tests," said Anders Österlund, an infectious disease doctor in Norbotten, to the paper.

"According to the paper, the same food was served at another restaurant but no one reported falling ill."
So obviously a worker at the restaurant did not clean himself properly after a visit to the restroom. Nice.

I think we need stricter food laws. I mean don't get me wrong, but there has been quite a few food poisoning cases these last few days.

The Swedish julbord is a culinary disaster that is imposed on restaurant patrons for almost two months out of every year. Thank god for Indian, Thai, and other "exotic" restaurants.
