Report: E.Coli Outbreak in Ontario
Health officials in Ontario, Canada, allege at least 50 people who ate at a Harvey's restaurant have been sickened and more cases are expected.
The source of the contamination has yet to be determined, the Globe & Mail reported Thursday of the outbreak that began last weekend among people who reported eating at a Harvey's in North Bay.
More cases were anticipated because it takes several days for people to fall ill after coming into contact with E.coli, Whiting said, adding the investigation is focused on common foods consumed by the victims, such as meat and lettuce.
