Although a number of basketball players at Boston College have called in sick and unable to practice or in any good shape for any meaningful game after allegedly contracting E.coli by eating out at a Chipotle restaurant in Cleveland Circle, an email alert from the senior associate director, Sports Medicine, Boston College confirmed that basketball team members have the epidemic and others should refrain from the restaurant.

E. coli is a species of bacteria normally present in the intestinal track of humans and other animals; it is often times pathogenic and mostly contracted by eating contaminated food.

Coming down with the food contamination after a woeful loss to UMass-Lowell is not the best thing to happen to basketball players of Boston College; and coaches disclosed that some players were not able to play yesterday due to the food poisoning - BC Interruption reports.

A BC coach stated that as many as 8 players were down with the infection, but another staff later confirmed that about 10 players have the epidemic. To make things worse, Eli Carter is down with a ankle injury and unable to practice or play with the team, making the total number of incapacitated players 11 at the moment.

To this end, the practice that was scheduled to hold Monday had been cancelled and it was hoped that many of the basketball players would be much recovered by Tuesday to practice so that they can be in the best of health for the Providence game of Wednesday night.

Since a medical staff of the Boston College’s university alerted students of the outbreak of E.coli at the Chipotle restaurant located within the campus, the restaurant has faced a number of sustained threats and discontents from people nationally for the outbreak.
