Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS -

Health of­fi­cials say a batch of re­fried beans may be to blame for sick­en­ing more than 100 peo­ple who ate at a western New York Mighty Taco restau­rant.

The Erie County Health De­part­ment said Fri­day it’s work­ing with the state and Ni­a­gara County health of­fi­cials to in­ves­ti­gate re­ports of nau­sea and vomit­ing among cus­tomers of one of the fast­food chain’s 11 Erie County lo­ca­tions.

As of Fri­day af­ter­noon, the county had heard from 104 peo­ple who’d eaten the restau­rant’s re­fried beans be­tween Sept. 27 and Oct. 6.

Health Com­mis­sioner Gale Burstein said sam­ples are be­ing sent to the state’s Wadsworth Cen­ter in Al­bany for test­ing, but that re­sults aren’t ex­pected for at least a week. Mighty Taco Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer Rus­sell Ja­sule­vich said Mighty Taco is co­op­er­at­ing with the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
