Cloquet, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Several elders have fallen ill with possible food poisoning on the Fond du Lac Reservation.

At least six people have reported symptoms.

According to the Tribal Chairwoman, Karen Diver, the reservation is working with the Minnesota Department of Health to determine the source of the illnesses.

Diver says there were multiple events held in recent days and a location has not been determined. She adds that none of the tribal enterprises is involved.

Symptoms of food poisoning generally include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. People who are experiencing those symptoms should seek appropriate medical attention.
