The New York Times reports that 35 people are ill with E. coli in New Jersey and Long Island.
At least five people are in the hospital, including two with hemolytic uremic syndrome, after eating at New Jersey-area Taco Bell restaurants. The E. coli outbreak has so far sickened at least 22 people, and has been traced to multiple Taco Bell locations.
Twenty of those infected, including two restaurant employees who tested positive for E. coli but did not get sick, ate at a Taco Bell in South Plainfield.
Authorities are trying to determine how and where the people with confirmed cases of E. coli became infected.
