Bobbi,

Spot on!!

For a FAQ on the Norovirus or "Norwalk-like viruses” (NLV) go to:

http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/revb/...rovirus-qa.htm

For food to be contaminated with the Norovirus someone first has to infect it. So obviously someone is not washing their hands after going to the toilet, vomitting (seasickness) or when cleaning (sanitation).

In Tom F's case we should be talking about food poisoning, Salmonella, E.coli, etc.
Did you contract any of these? Did anyone else?

For an overview of all Foodborne Infections go to:

http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dbmd/disea...fections_g.htm

For a FAQ on Salmonellosis go to:

http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dbmd/disea...nellosis_g.htm

For a FAQ on Escherichia coli O157:H7 (E.coli) go to:
