Three people are dead and five others are being treated for “probable food-borne (illness) symptoms, according to Contra Costa County health officials. The eight victims share the same residence and all attended the Thanksgiving dinner at the Antioch, CA American Legion Post.

At a Monday evening press conference, health officials said they are still in the early stages of the investigation. At this point there is no evidence that anyone except the family members got sick.

For that reason, the incident is not yet being treated as an outbreak of foodborne illness.

In addition to the three deaths, one member of the family has been admitted to the Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch. That facility treated three members of the family who died, and admitted a fourth. The four others from the family were treated and released.
