E. Coli Outbreak Linked to Taco Bell

Eleven Taco Bells linked to an E. Coli outbreak in New York and New Jersey were all using the same food distributor (05DEC06). All 11 Taco Bells implicated in an E. coli outbreak in New York and New Jersey used the same food distributor. According to distributor Texas-based McLane Co., the Taco Bell representatives and state and federal health inspectors took a tour of the distribution center in Burlington, New Jersey, that supplied the restaurants. Nine people remain hospitalized in New Jersey and New York as health officials try to discover the source of the dangerous bacteria. Taco Bell Corp. spokesman Rob Poetsch says, "We have no indication what the source is. We're looking into all possibilities."
