PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island public health officials are warning consumers to discard all food prepared at an East Greenwich gourmet shop because it may be contaminated with the norovirus.

The state health department says all prepared food bought at Greenwich Bay Gourmet between last Friday and Tuesday should be thrown out.

Rhode Island state officials became aware of the problem after nearly half the guests at a weekend function became ill.

The store cooperated fully with the investigation and has taken appropriate actions.

Norovirus is a common stomach illness that causes nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
