A Christmas lunch left a bitter aftertaste for restaurant guests in in the north of Sweden. Around 70 came down with a nasty stomach bug, after a traditional Swedish Yule smorgoasbord in Luleå 

“This is evidently a case of food poisoning,” Anders Österlund, a doctor specializing in communicable diseases, told the local Norrbottens-Kuriren newspaper.

The restaurant has now decided to stop offering the Christmas smorgasbords for this season.

Tests have been carried out but reason behind the outbreak is still unknown.
