At least four children at an Alabama daycare contracted Salmonella infections between the end of September and middle of October. Health officials say other cases may be linked to the outbreak.

Milestones Learning Center in Auburn, AL says four children who attend the daycare fell ill with what later turned out to be Salmonella infections between September 24 and October 13.

Health officials say they are investigating other cases of Salmonella in the Lee County area.

East Alabama Medical Center reports that one patient there tested positive for a Salmonella infection, according to local news station WTVM 9. Other patients have exhibited symptoms of salmonellosis.
