While we wait for laboratory analysis of food samples from the Country Cottage restaurant in Locust Grove, OK, there was this update:

The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) said today at least 231 persons have become ill as the result of an E. coli 0111 outbreak in northeastern Oklahoma. Of that number, 185 were adults, 43 were children and the ages of three cases have not yet been confirmed.

At least 61 persons have been hospitalized including 16 who have received dialysis treatment. Of that number, nine were children and seven were adults.

The OSDH cautions that the number of reported cases and hospitalizations associated with the outbreak are likely to change as the investigation continues.

One man who became ill also died.   For more from OSDH, go here.

Meanwhile, families with victims of the outbreak are retaining Bill Marler to represent them as reported by this Fox News report.
