Oklahoma state health officials revealed on Friday that they have found a trace of E. coli in the water well of the Country Cottage restaurant in the town of Locust Grove.

This is the same restaurant where many people have fallen ill from the E. coli outbreak.

The E. coli outbreak in the state of Oklahoma has already caused the death of 26-year old Chad Ingle, and has also caused 116 other people to become sick.

So far, 50 have had to be hospitalized.  The push is on to test the water to see if the strains of E. coli match.
