More than 100 sickened after food safety summit

BALTIMORE (AP) - Health officials are investigating what may have sickened over 100 people who attended a conference where more than 1,300 food safety experts gathered.

No one at the Food Safety Summit held April 8-10 in Baltimore was hospitalized, according to health officials, and most people reported cases of diarrhea.

Alvina Chu, who is leading the Maryland Department of Health's investigation, says officials haven't yet determined what caused people to get sick. Chu says it's not yet clear if the illness was transmitted by food or from person to person.
