State and federal investigators are trying to figure out the source of a stomach bug that has sickened 372 people in 15 states.
Iowa and Nebraska have linked some of their cases to pre-packaged salad mix.
But federal health officials have said the mix is not linked to all of the cases.
No cases have been reported in the state of Michigan.
