The Matador reopens after E. coli outbreak
SEATTLE — Following an E. coli outbreak that sickened seven people, the Matador is back open. The favorite Ballard restaurant opened its doors Saturday morning after a week-long closure.
On Thursday, public health officials inspected the restaurant and found that it had been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized.
One of the E. coli victims is a 16-year-old girl who was hospitalized after becoming anemic and suffering kidney failure. Her family is suing the matador for the outbreak.
