100 Airbus employees fall sick after company’s Christmas party

Earlier this month, festivities turned sour for employees of an Airbus subsidiary in France as a holiday celebration resulted in dozens of employees falling ill after a company Christmas party.

“Around 100 Airbus Atlantic employees were taken ill after contracting a food-borne illness after eating the company-organized Christmas lunch,” a spokesperson said in an emailed statement to CNN.

No one at Airbus experienced severe illness during the incident on December 15, and by the following Monday, all employees had returned to work, as per the spokesperson.

The outbreak of illness is currently under investigation by French health authorities, as stated by the Airbus spokesperson.

Established in January 2022, Airbus Atlantic is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Airbus focused on airplane seats.

Despite having 13,000 employees across five countries, the unfortunate Christmas lunch incident happened in France.
