News4 reports that 30 people were taken to the hospital Saturday for what officials believe was a foodborne illness.
Multiple agencies were called to Florida Gateway College in Lake City, where 28 minors and two adults attending the Science Olympiad competition were suffering from what is believed to be food poisoning.
Due to the volume of people needing treatment, ambulances were called in from neighboring counties, and were taken Lake City Medical Center and Shands Lake Shore.
Officials said the only common denominator was the catered lunch provided to those participating in the competition. A witness said everyone who had eaten the pork was taken to a hospital.
