At least 50 soldiers are nauseous from food while guarding the US Capitol | Instant News

Washington – At least 50 National Guard members have become ill with digestive problems after complaints that service members were being treated to bad food while guarding the US Capitol in Washington, officials said.

Michigan lawmakers asked the military to fire the contractor involved – identified in federal records as Sardi’s Catering in College Park, Maryland.

Sardi was awarded a $ 11.4 million contract by the District National Guard of Columbia on Jan.25 to provide food to troops activated to assist with security after the Jan.6 Capitol attack. Calls to Sardi’s and the business owner on Wednesday were not immediately returned.

A guard spokesman said Wednesday that none of those sick had been hospitalized with illness from food since the Capitol’s security mission began Jan. 6; however, some have been hospitalized.
