LEBANON, CT (WFSB) -

More cases of E.coli linked to a farm in Lebanon have been reported.

The state’s Department of Public Health said it is investigating 15 confirmed cases of E.coli, and 14 of them are linked to the Oak Leaf Farm.

Officials said patients range from 1 to 44 years old, with a median age of 6.

Five patients were hospitalized, and three are still in the hospital. Two of the hospitalized patients have been diagnosed with Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), as first reported last week.

Officials said the number of E.coli cases could increase as the department is working to identify individuals who were not initially reported.

Last week, Eyewitness News reported that seven cases of E.coli were reported, with six of them being linked to the Lebanon farm.
