All 11 Taco Bells implicated in an E. coli outbreak in New York and New Jersey used the same food distributor, the restaurant chain said Tuesday as health officials tried to pinpoint the source of the dangerous bacteria that sickened at least three dozen people. Nine people remained hospitalized in New Jersey and New York, including an 11-year-old boy in stable condition with kidney damage. Taco Bell Corp. said it had sanitized the affected restaurants.

Eight TGI Fridays restaurants in New Jersey will pay a $500,000 total fine to the state and will not contest charges that they served bottom-shelf drinks to customers who had ordered premium alcohol. The establishments, run by hospitality franchise company Briad Group, will shell out $400,000 for the violations and $100,000 to cover the investigative costs associated with the state's "Operation Swill" sting. The state's Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control raided 29 eateries in May and seized 1,000 bottles, according to a statement Wednesday from New Jersey's Acting Atty.

President Clinton's modest proposal to raise the minimum wage in two steps to $5.15 from its present $4.25 figure, set four years ago, has raised a chorus of objections. It would raise unemployment, we are told, by making it impossible for employers to hire low-productivity workers. Hence, it would hurt those it is intended to help.

The news comes just months after officials fingered prepackaged California spinach in an outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 that sickened more than 200 people and killed three.

It long has been a commonly held maxim that, when entering an untried French restaurant, a useful safety device is to order and taste the soup du jour before selecting the rest of the meal. Should the soup make the grade, it is likely that the rest of the repast will be satisfactory; the reverse also can be assumed with some degree of confidence. The soup caveat applies less to Italian restaurants, at least in this country, because few place much emphasis on soups.
