Effingham County Illinois Investigates E. coli Cases Linked with Restaurant

The Effingham County Health Department is investigating several cases of E. coli.

The health department says it has six confirmed cases of E. coli O157:H7. They are all linked to eating at El Rancherito restaurant in Effingham at I-57 and I-70. The health department says the restaurant is cooperating and has been closed since Thursday.  The people affected ate there between September 11th and the 13th. Their illnesses started between the 14th and 17th. No word on their conditions.

I just landed in Houston, Texas an hour ago.  The plan is to have meetings this week with lawyers involved in the Peanut Butter litigation.  I know, eventually I will have to stop talk about my China trip, but, I thought I would share one more photo from the conference:

Had dinner with some famous Houston and Louisiana trial lawyers (and one nice Jewish lawyer from Florida).


    I applaud your very fine story and comments and appeal to you to visit my blog site http://bullstone-larrym.blogspot.com/ and see the evidence of rat fecal contamination in meats produced by an instrument of the State of Florida department of Corrections. I have been battling with the USDA to issue a recall on the millions of pounds of meat the State of Florida produced under contract for my company. This meat was distributed nation wide to schools, supermarkets and institutions. When we discovered that this Florida State division was storing food supplies and edible ingredients in a rat infested warehouse we began our quest to get this information to the public and get accountability placed on those who allowed this to happen. When you read the information on my blog you will see the validity of both our stories .I support your efforts and request your support of mine. Regards Larry Stone
