Restaurant linked to E. coli

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - State health officials say a Locust Grove restaurant has been linked to a deadly E. coli outbreak.

The illness has killed one man and left dozens sick including several children who are undergoing dialysis.

Many of the sick recently ate at the Country Cottage and state epidemiologist Dr. Kristy Bradley says the restaurant is "definitely" at least one source of the infection.

Bradley also says tests indicate it's likely food was contaminated at the restaurant rather than before it arrived.

Country Cottage spokeswoman Amanda Clinton says the restaurant's owners are distraught and it's not clear if it will open again.
