I've been to this catering hall before, and it is beautiful. The food was delicious. I doubt this illness came from here, everything was very clean. It could've easily been the pre-party at the home. Unless all the information is true, it is not right to post unproved facts.

That is inncorrect. The swine flu cannot be spread through food. It can be spread from human to human contact.

I had attended a wedding here saturday. I did not feel ill that evening or the next day. Early tues am i woke up with GI sx's vomiting, etc i had a temp of 99.4 and headaches. I slept for over 24 hours and felt i just had a stomach virus. I plan to call the D.O.H. to report these sx's just in case it will help. I had no more vomiting within 30 hours and have no fever,

It is probably a Novovirus.

You live in Islandia and had a party that cost $175,000? I find that very odd? What are your parents selling behind those iron bars?

You are funny. Low grade temp does accompany sx's of some illness,while high temps signify others.
These are used to dx properly.
Obviously you do not work in the healthcare field?
Stay Slappy Sanchez.

Ask Steve Levy why an illegal immigrant can get a food managers certificate in Suffolk county with his name on it.

It sounds more like Salmonella to me.$10,000.00 to get sick, what a deal. I can't imagine what the future wedding will cost?

I've gone to a few wedding receptions over the last 3 decades at Larkfield Manor and at no time was ill due to the food service...

I'll always remember their viennese table after midnight. It doesn't get much better than that...

BTW, why should anyone care if $10 grand is spent on a sweet sixteen party? It's not your money and don't think this wasn't done back in the day at a third of the cost (relative to the value of the dollar)...

Yes and the workers most likely did not wash their hands. This was a virus transmitted by a person a gastroenteritis (norovirus) i was there and i got it.

We are in time of recession and not in time of stupid people who are united to be able to mach dirty and to remove money with lies. As it possible that they comment that they became ill in catering of prestige... because better they do not comment that they remaided without money to invite people to they sweet 16 and they want to remove to money that now they do not have to continue eating JAJAJAJAJAJA !!! Is better to laugh to us of people who do not have money and mean against the friendships that if they have. They do not soil prestige of best catering of suffolk

I wonder why birthday girl didn't get sick? If it was the food, one would think everyone would be ill. Hope they are doing some testing to find out what this was specifically. If they leave it an open question, then Larkfield Manor will surely lose some business. That would not be fair to them.
