NYT Co. warns of cafeteria-related illnesses

The company has closed its in-house eatery at the NYT Co. Building (left), at least for today, when several employees reported getting sick after eating there, according to Gawker and NYT Picker. The blog about The New York Times quotes Chairman Arthur Sulzberger and CEO Janet Robinson's memo: "We have learned that several Times Company employees have become ill with gastrointestinal symptoms over the past 24 hours. We are working with the New York City Department of Health and Restaurant Associates to determine if the cause of these symptoms was food-based and will provide additional information as soon as it becomes available. While we do not know if the cause is food-related, as a precaution, we are closing the cafeteria for the day."
