50 from De Soto treated for food poisoning during Pennsylvania band trip

By Joe Mandak, Associated Press

Pittsburgh — Fifty students and chaperones from De Soto High School have been treated for food poisoning symptoms at a western Pennsylvania hospital after becoming ill while traveling for a band trip to New York.

A spokeswoman for Excela Frick Hospital says 40 students and 10 chaperones have been treated at the hospital in Mount Pleasant, about 30 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

The Pennsylvania and New York state health departments are investigating where the band ate. The group from De Soto High School near Kansas City ate somewhere in New York before 164 of them headed home on three buses early Wednesday.

Those sickened have been treated and were packing up to continue their return trip to Kansas by Wednesday afternoon.

I do not know why people would do that to High School students. Also why would you do that when they are even trying to buy something from you. It's like saying to 164 kids you can't eat here. That is how much money that they are losing.
