ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The investigation into the source an E-coli outbreak in Colquitt County continues.

At least a dozen people have shown up at the emergency room this week with symptoms similar to those caused by E-coli bacteria. So far 15-year-old Lauren Hill Bannister is the only confirmed case of E-coli.

Health officials believe the common link is ground beef.

Bannister is being treated at the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston where she is in good condition Saturday night. She will probably be released Sunday.

Symptoms include severe stomach cramps and stomach tenderness, nausea and vomiting, and possibly a high fever.
