A Thunder Bay banquet hall is facing charges following a suspected food borne illness outbreak.
The outbreak followed an event at the Moose Hall on Fort William Road on Dec. 13.
Officials with the Thunder Bay District Health Unit say an estimated 20 per cent of the 270 people in attendance began displaying symptoms within a few hours of consuming food served at the hall.
But the outbreak was short lived, as the symptoms only lasted about 24 hours.
A charge has been laid and the hall's food production has been suspended pending the outcome of their investigation.
