NBC 5 News reports that the Collin County Health Department is investigating the sudden illness of several Plano fifth-graders.
Officials told NBC 5 that 19 students at Plano’s Hedgcoxe Elementary School became ill on Wednesday, complaining of nausea and vomiting.
One student was hospitalized with dehydration. That student’s mother said her daughter is expected to go home on Friday.
A county representative said the health department is looking into whether the students got sick from E. coli or salmonella.
