PIERRE, SD -
South Dakota health officials have concluded that food poisoning sickened dozens of people who attended a high school basketball game in Pierre.
State Epidemiologist Lon Kightlinger says the culprit was a bacteria found on meat and poultry. He says people who filled out questionnaires implicated tacos sold by a school group as a fundraiser during the Jan. 31 game between Pierre and Mitchell.
The illness caused by the bacteria lasts for less than 24 hours for most people. No serious illnesses have been reported in Pierre or Mitchell because of the taco incident.
