US : One more E coli case confirmed

Via STL Today :

" Another case of E. coli in the St. Louis area was confirmed Sunday by state health officials, bringing to 28 the number of confirmed cases in the current outbreak.

Local, federal and state public health experts continued on Sunday to try to trace the source of the outbreak.

The state Department of Health and Senior Services also is trying to determine if three confirmed cases in Boone County are connected to the St. Louis outbreak.

No deaths or life-threatening illnesses have been reported since the first cases were disclosed late in October in St. Louis and in Jefferson, St. Louis and St. Charles counties in Missouri and St. Clair County in Illinois.

The health department also says that no food samples tested so far have contained E. coli, a group of bacteria that can cause diarrhea and other illnesses."
