Dr. Cynthia Morrow says the latest test results from the state Health Department provide "overwhelming evidence" the clams were the source of the illness.
She said the clams were contaminated with Campylobacter and Vibrio, bacteria that cause gastrointestinal illness and diarrhea.
A total of 236 people who ate food from Hinerwadel's Grove in Clay between Sept. 4 and Sept. 16 developed food poisoning. The restaurant stopped serving the suspect clams after the outbreak investigation began.
Morrow said the lab results show it's unlikely
Hinerwadel's was to blame for the contamination.
