More than 100 attendees at the Cleveland County Fair fell ill in October after an E. coli outbreak possibly related to contaminated food. According to the N.C.

Public health officials noted that it could take another month to pinpoint the precise cause of the outbreak, and investigators are interviewing infected individuals.
