The Ottawa County Department of Public Health is investigating a gastrointestinal illness outbreak associated with the Wild Chef Japanese Steakhouse Grill and Bar in Holland Township, Michigan, according to WWMT.com. The restaurant closed voluntarily on Tuesday, April 1, 2014 after a number of customers reported becoming ill.

Fancy Restaurant TablesMore than 100 cases are associated with the restaurant. Public health officials are investigating, and waiting for lab results to pinpoint what is causing the illness and if a particular food is responsible. Symptoms reported included nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramps, and fever.

Officials are asking that anyone who ate at the restaurant between March 27 and April 1, 2014, to fill out a questionnaire to help them in their investigation. Customers are asked to respond even if they are not ill; in fact, investigators are especially interested in hearing from people who did not get sick. The questionnaire asks if anyone has been ill with diarrhea and/or vomiting, the date and time the customers ate at the restaurant, and where the customers sat, and at which hibachi grill, while dining. The questionnaire also asks specifically what customers ate and drank at the restaurant.
