Mexican restaurant offers free food on Sept. 16

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Owners of a chain of Mexican food restaurants in the Phoenix area are offering free food on Sept. 16 to show customers that their restaurants are safe and clean.
 
Maricopa County health officials say at least 52 people were sickened after eating at Federico's Mexican Food Restaurant in Litchfield Park on July 23 and 24.
 
They're still trying to determine what items were contaminated with the E. coli bacteria. The infection causes vomiting, cramps and kidney failure in some cases.
 
Federico's has 20 restaurants in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Sept. 16 is Mexican Independence Day.
 
Restaurant officials also announced Tuesday that they will donate 20 percent of Sept. 30's gross sales to the Arizona chapter of the National Kidney Foundation since E. coli impacts the kidneys.

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
