— Some people claim a Raleigh fast food restaurant made them sick.

The Arby's restaurant on Hillsborough Street is under investigation after 36 people who said they ate there on March 3 and March 4 got sick to their stomachs.

The Health Department has not been able to trace the problem to a particular food. Health officials believe an employee may have passed a virus on to customers by not washing his or her hands.

The Arby's restaurant received "A's" on its last seven

health inspections
