Sorority houses on Florida State's campus are in a frenzy over a possible food poisoning epidemic.

Rumors are circulating that more than 70 girls in the Phi Mu house have become very ill and some maybe even hospitalized.

A representative from the sorority says she cannot confirm or deny the allegations until a formal response is issued from the Sorority's headquarters.

Some members of the Greek community say it is possible that this outbreak is affecting more than one house and the rumors have many other sororities taking precautions to protect their members.

Sara Noel Childers an FSU Sorority Member says, "We've been hearing all day that there's about 80 girls sick and there's rumors its been from the flu, or food poisoning. So that's what we've been hearing all day"

Kara Beth Yancey, also an FSU sorority member says her house is going to take more precautions to prevent a similar situation. "We're not going to stop ordering in but we are going to be a little more cautious on what kind of food we're ordering in."

No reports have been confirmed at this time, but we will continue to follow up on this story and bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.
