An E. coli outbreak linked to a restaurant in Locust Grove has sickened more than 200 people and killed at least one person, state health officials said.

The Country Cottage restaurant has been closed voluntarily for more than a week, but the source of the contamination has not been pinpointed, state epidemiologist Dr. Kristy Bradley said in a statement.

Health officials first reported the outbreak Aug. 25.

The state Health Department said that 206 people have become ill, including 53 children.

Those sickened range in age from 2 months to 88 years.

The outbreak has been blamed for one death, that of Chad Ingle, 26.
