Health Director Buck Wilson said in a statement, “we are diligently tracking this illness in order to determine the original source of contamination and we need anyone who consumed food or beverages and then became sick to contact us for an interview. We hope to resolve this soon. Our Health Department staff and state officials have inspected the facilities and any issues that ¬†might have contributed to the spread of the bacteria have been addressed.”
