NBC has halted production of its upcoming series “Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide” amid reports that an “explosive diarrhea” outbreak took place.
Production on the Simi Valley, California set reportedly stopped after a crew member tested positive for giardia, a parasite that causes diarrheal disease if swallowed.
The article goes on to state the following:
Reps for the show did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment, but a spokesperson for Universal Television Alternative Studios, which is producing the show, confirmed the shutdown in a statement to People.
“The health and safety of everyone on our set is our number one priority, so out of an abundance of caution we have made the decision to stop production of Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide at the current location,” the spokesperson said. “We are in the process of determining next steps in order to complete production.”
The Wrap first reported the news of the outbreak. The outlet reported a person familiar with knowledge of the incident said the outbreak caused 40 people to become “violently ill” with “awful explosive diarrhea.” They also claim that it caused people to collapse on set while trying to find bathrooms.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, giardia “spreads easily and can spread from person to person or through contaminated water, food, surfaces, or objects.”
Twitter user Michael Mackie tweeted Saturday, “Production has, um, hit the skids.”
