In late December, the health department identified four people who became sick after eating E. coli-infected smoked meat products purchased at Zillman. The shop conducted a thorough cleaning at that time.

The additional cases identified today by the health department involve meat products purchased before the time of the original announcement. According to the release, the cases involved meat products purchased in Wausau that were shared with family members in Michigan.
