Cole Co. E.Coli investigation update

May 1st, 2012 in News

After further testing at the state health lab in Jefferson City, the Cole County Health Department said Tuesday that the notification of presumptive Shiga toxin-producing organism they were given last Wednesday is now considered a "suspect" case.

That's because the lab could not reproduce the positive result that an area hospital had reported.

A second local hospital notified the health department of a case of presumptive E. Coli on Monday. Results from tests in connection with this case are still pending.
