Mets News:According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, Philadelphia Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg and New York Mets first baseman Lucas Duda both came down with food poisoning over the weekend at Citi Field, and both said Tuesday that they believe a hamburger from Shake Shack was the cause.
Sandberg told reporters in Philadelphia that he lost 6 pounds in two days.
"A couple of coaches took a bite and didn't like what they saw and threw the rest away," Sandberg said. "I was in a rush so I ended up putting it away.
Duda was hospitalized Friday afternoon and later blamed an undercooked hamburger. He confirmed Tuesday at Yankee Stadium that the burger also came from Shake Shack.
But a Mets spokesman insisted the hamburger Duda cited came from another Shake Shack location besides Citi Field.
Duda missed Friday night's game against the Phillies but was able to return to the Mets' lineup Saturday and has played every game since then.
A Mets official told ESPN the team is investigating the matter.
