Notice that the coroner indicates that 4 hours not 2 is the allowable time, and that 9.8 colony forming units per gram is not the same at 9.8 million "parts" per 10 million "parts".
You did well to pick up on that mozart, is it what we call sensationalist journalism or an article [my link] done by someone who doesn't understand, he who comes out with the better story gets more following.

Perhaps the Gentleman's age had a lot to do with it, just the same, it shouldn't have happened.

You are right attie - it shouldn't have happened. The gentleman DID get sick due to careless food handling, but, then because of maybe his age, or his ulcers, it became fatal. The last time I got food poisoning my husband really wanted me to go to the hospital. He basically said "you don't understand, food poisoning is nothing to mess around with" - now I understand why. I ended up, obviously , being ok but boy, was I sick.
