Over 30 People Hospitalized After ”Exposure to Feces” During Charlotte Party


The Mecklenburg Health Department just released an official statement saying that an “exposure of feces” at a birthday party this past weekend in east Charlotte has sent dozens of people to the hospital.

Charlotte paramedics were called to a large event at an apartment building off Four Seasons Lane in east Charlotte yesterday afternoon.

There have now been at least 33 people who have been taken to the hospital in connection with the event. 2 out of the 3 people in intensive care are children.

“The diarrhea is severe and could go on for days. We want to get everyone tested. We worry about people getting dehydrated,” the Mecklenburg Health Director commented this morning.

The health department is asking anyone who took food home from the event to throw it away and not to eat it.

This past weekend’s incident is not related to the recent West Charlotte’s Hardees Hepatitis A Outbreak.
