SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Northern California public health officials say they may never determine what caused a bacterial infection at a restaurant that sickened 190 people.

The San Jose Mercury News reports that (https://tinyurl.com/povzvkk ) says local public health officials did not find the bacteria that cause shigella in any of the food samples examined at a San Jose seafood restaurant at the source of the outbreak. Santa Clara County health officials say two-thirds of all food-borne outbreaks go unsolved.

Authorities say they are confident the outbreak did start at the restaurant because nearly all victims ate at the restaurant on Oct. 16 or 17. Health officials say they number of new cases has slowed.

Several victims have required hospitalization but no fatalities have been reported. The restaurant remains closed.
