ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Health investigators don't expect to see more e-coli cases.

We've passed the 10-day incubation period since a Moultrie restaurant linked to the outbreak closed.Several potential cases came back with negative results, and no new cases past the eight lab confirmed cases have been reported.

Three of four patients seriously sickened by the illness remain hospitalized at Archbold Memorial in Thomasville. The USDA has concluded their investigation in Moultrie and now The Barbeque Pit can begin their clean up.

"The first thing would be to get rid of the food, throw away any open containers or any food and then the cleanup process will begin and that will be facilitated by an outside agency after that is done then our environmental health specialist will be going through doing another inspection as well as taking some samples," said Dr. Jacqueline Grant, Southwest Georgia Public Health Director.

Once those samples are cleared, the restaurant should be able to reopen.

    A South Georgia man was given a bell two years ago, but it wasn't until two weeks ago that he discovered there was an inscription on it. Now he's looking for its rightful owner.
