Four Oklahoma Elementary Schools Now Linked to Fourteen Salmonella Illnesses

So, where is Senator Coburn when you need him?  According to local press reports, as the investigation continues, the number of kids exposed to Salmonella in Mustang Public Schools grows. Thursday afternoon officials from the State Health Department told parents there were 10 students exposed to the bacteria at four different elementary schools, but on Monday that number rose to 14. And just like the first 10 students, officials say the kids became ill between September 2 and 11.  The Health Department is also investigating at least three other illnesses in Oklahoma as well as illnesses in Iowa and Nebraska.
