81 People Ended Up in the Hospital After Eating Guinea Pig at a Food Fest
81 People Ended Up in the Hospital After Eating Guinea Pig at a Food Fest

Being adventurous with food is all fine and good.  You just have to draw the line somewhere . . . and hopefully it’s before you start wondering how your PETS would taste.

On August 11th, there was a food festival in Minneapolis featuring cuisine from Ecuador . . . where apparently they eat some unusual things.

Case in point, 81 people showed up at area hospitals after chowing down on GUINEA PIG meat.

Apparently roasted guinea pig is a delicacy in Ecuador, and it’s described as tender and oily.  But I guess it’s tough to get the GOOD stuff over here, because all 81 people tested positive for salmonella poisoning.

The vendor that sold it is now facing fines.  And they might also have their permit revoked, because serving guinea pig meat was NOT approved by the festival.
