‘Hot Spot’ is an all-you-can-eat buffet
“I was in a state of panic when I realized I couldn’t get food at the table,” said Jessica Paz, a 23-year-old student at The Ohio State University, who was waiting for the hot spot.
“I started crying.
I couldn, like, eat and have fun.
It was a horrible feeling.”
After a while, her roommate and friend took over.
“It was really great,” said Paz.
“We got all the food.
We got a salad and a few drinks.
We also got to try the BBQ ribs.
I’m a meat lover, so I’m glad that I got a bite to eat.”
A few days later, Paz got the call that the hot spots would be shut down.
“At first I was, like ‘What’s going on?'” said Paj, who is a recent graduate from The Ohio University.
“And then I realized it was like a mass shutdown.
Everyone who came in was just like, ‘It’s shut down!'”
Paz’s friend said they were shocked, and it was hard for them to figure out what to do.
“The food was pretty good,” she said.
“But I was a little hesitant because the food was just so hot.
But after that we were like, we’re in.”
The Ohio state government says that, since March 1, there have been more than 300 food-related incidents in the hot-spot area, including two incidents in May that killed a student.
But it’s not clear if there have also been more incidents in other parts of the state.
“In the past few weeks, there’s been some concern that some of the hot area food and beverages might have gotten contaminated,” said David Roper, director of the Ohio Department of Public Health and Environment.
“That’s something we’re monitoring closely.”
A hot spot in a crowded restaurant In the past week, several hot spots have been shut down in Dayton, Cincinnati and Toledo, but many other hot spots in the area remain open, including in Toledo.
The Ohio Department for Human Services (OHSP) says the closures are due to a number of factors, including a food safety and health emergency.
“These hot spots are often busy locations, and they can get very crowded, especially in the summer months,” said Mary Lou Pizano, director for public safety and food safety for OHSP.
“As a result, OHSP is making changes to make sure that we’re getting the food that is safe and serving the public safely.”
The agency says hot spots will still be open until the end of March.
“OHSP is continuing to monitor the hot and cold spots in Dayton and Cincinnati,” Pizado said.
