questions and concerns
The Gallatin City-County Health Department (GCCHD), the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have been investigating an unthinkable and tragic foodborne illness related to morel mushrooms that were served at our restaurant between the end of March and mid April 2023.
Above all else, our hearts go out to the loved ones of the two people who passed away and to all who have been impacted, no matter the circumstances.
The manner and cause of death for these two people are pending until autopsy and toxicology results are completed; however, the focus of the GCCHD, the DPHHS, the CDC and the FDA have been on the morel mushrooms that we purchased from a reputable California distributor.
We realize there is a lot of misinformation and rumors about what happened, as well as questions about our recent health inspection reports. We’ve created this information page to answer as many questions as possible during this ongoing investigation.
