Food Poisoning Not To Blame for Mysterious Plainview Illness

The Hale County Health Department continues to investigate a mysterious illness that struck more than 50 people in Plainview.

About 26 Wayland Baptist University students went to the emergency room Wednesday night complaining of nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, headache and diarrhea. It was unclear Monday, but a health inspector Jack McCasland says it probably was not food poisoning, and could be a viral sickness.

The investigation centers around the Wayland Baptist cafeteria, where most of the students eat everyday.
