Local health officials are investigating an outbreak of a food-borne disease that hospitalized two people and sickened nearly 100 others after a recent wedding reception in Celina.
Two guests at the wedding - from Auglaize and Butler counties - have been confirmed to have shigellosis, caused by the bacteria shigella, which must be swallowed in order to be infectious. It is an "oral-fecal" disease and typically occurs when basic hygiene and handwashing habits are inadequate. [More]
