25 sick with E. coli: Chicago restaurant closed

The Chicago Tribune reports a Bridgeport restaurant has been closed after an outbreak of E. coli affected at least 25 Chicago residents and sent at least five Carbon Live Fire Mexican Grillpeople to the hospital, public health officials said Friday.

Carbon Live Fire Mexican Grill at 300 W. 26th St. has been linked to the Shiga toxin-producing E. coli outbreak and the restaurant closed voluntarily, according to a news release from the Chicago Department of Public Health. The restaurant is fully cooperating with the investigation.

The owner could not be reached for comment.
