Health Officials Confirm E-Coli in Lexington


We've just learned the same strain of E-Coli that has sickened nearly two hundred people across the nation is confirmed in Lexington.

Now officials are waiting on test results to find out if the E-Coli was caused by tainted spinach.

At least 175 people in 21 states have become ill from eating fresh bagged spinach.

Health officials say another E-Coli case in Fayette County is not the same strain.

We'll bring you more information in this case on 27 NEWSFIRST as it develops.
