Mega Gross Out: Heston Blumenthal's The Fat Duck
Food poisoning isn't always the unfortunate result of eating at dives.
The recent closure of England's famed Michelin-starred restaurant The Fat Duck, run by cutting-edge chef Heston Blumenthal, shows that even the world's poshest dining destinations can have a really bad bout of bad luck.
According to CNN, possibly 400 customers suffered vomiting and diarrhea after eating there, so the chef closed his restaurant to facilitate a thorough investigation by England's Health Protection Agency.
Not so sure I'm craving those legendary Fat Duck frites anymore...
