Berne restaurant closed after outbreak
A Berne restaurant that had its permit to operate temporarily suspended by the Adams County Health Department last week after testing done by the laboratory of the Indiana State Department of Health confirmed at least six persons came down with a food borne illness may be allowed to reopen perhaps as early as today.
Adams County Health Officer Dr. Michael Ainsworth said the permit for the El Carreton 2 restaurant, 922W C.R. 500S at the north edge of Berne, had been suspended Thursday after the health department began receiving complaints from people who had become ill after eating at the restaurant.
El Carreton 2 workers immediately addressed the original concerns, but when additional complaints continued to be fielded by the health department the restaurant’s permit was suspended, pending the outcome of test results done on cultures submitted to the ISDH lab by county health officials.
