(Newser) – This might make it a little easier to get a table at Copenhagen's Noma, which has reigned as the No. 1 eatery at Restaurant magazine for three straight years: Sixty-three diners got sick over a four-day period last month, reports Bloomberg. Danish health officials ordered the restaurant to ramp up its food-handling procedures after what they termed a "massive" outbreak of diarrhea and vomiting, reports AP. Would-be diners typically have to make reservations months in advance and can expect to shell out $440 for a Nordic meal with wine.

“We acknowledge that the internal procedures haven’t been good enough and because of busyness, employees didn’t check e-mails" from the first ailing customers, says a restaurant statement.

This is one of the reasons wealthy people make me sick. Millions of people in the world are starving and they are spending 4oo on a dinner? They all deserve to get sick and die just like the starving people. I live in an area where some people spend copious amounts of money on homes and cars. Every time I see one I ask them why the severe insecurity.
