A spokesperson with St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa says doctors are treating 12 patients suspected of E. coli poisoning.  The health department says between 10-20 people have been treated and released from other hosptitals in northeastern Oklahoma.

The Health Department has not released the source of the illnesses, but readers of the Tulsa World and KJRH websites have named Country Cottage in Locust Grove as the likely source of the outbreak - see comments below.  Given the number of E. coli outbreaks linked to tainted meat in the last several months, it will be interesting to see what the common food source is between all those who became ill.  See link to recalls due to E. coli O157:H7 here.
