Over 50 guests at Eilat hotel report stomach ailments; health inspectors stumped

Health Ministry investigators have yet to determine what has caused dozens of guests at an Eilat hotel to come down with stomach ailments, but appear to suspect food poisoning.

The ministry says 56 people staying at the Dan Eilat have reported vomiting and intestinal cramps, most of whom have not needed to seek medical attention.

Reports of illnesses began to reach the ministry on Tuesday, but two checks of the hotel kitchen by government inspectors since then have come up clean. The hotel’s food has also been sent to a lab for testing.

The ministry says it is continuing to investigate.
