ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - New numbers on the month-old E.Coli outbreak show just one more case confirmed since the weekend.

There are now 30 confirmed cases statewide, with 21 of those in St. Louis County.  County Health Department spokesman Craig LeFebvre says the big unanswered question is where did it come from?

“As of now there are still no food sources that we’ve identified that have tested positive for E-coli.  That remains a mystery.  We know it came from somewhere , we just don’t know where.” Said LeFebvre.

The FDA is now in town, working with the CDC and State Health Officials to try to solve the riddle. But they admit, there’s a chance the original source of the outbreak may never be found.
