A compensation agreement has been reached for people who fell ill after eating a catered brunch at the Royal Botanical Gardens on Mother’s Day 2004. If approved by the courts on September 28th, the agreement will provide compensation of 500 dollars for mild cases, up to 50-thousand dollars for the most severe.

Approximately 155 individuals suffered salmonella poisoning as a result of the incident.

The RBG has since hired a new caterer.
