MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -
The State Health Department is investigating a potential foodborne outbreak in Morgan County. One person is confirmed dead. There are currently two confirmed cases.
There has been 19 reports of gastro-intestinal illnesses at three local hospitals. So far, two of those have tested positive for E. Coli, Salmonella, or both, and the person who died had E. Coli poisoning.
An epidemiologist with the Alabama Department of Public Health, Doctor Mary McIntyre, said they are looking for a common source, and they need to test more specimens. There is one common thread with several of the patients who had gastro-intestinal illnesses, and that's that several of them ate a catered chicken meal at a church in Morgan County on May 30.
The health department wants us to tell anyone who has been asked by them to provide a specimen to please consider it, because they are having a tough time getting the number they need for testing.
As soon as we learn more, we will pass it along to you.
