Authorities continue to investigate what caused the salmonella poisoning of students and staff at Princeton University continues as the victims recuperate.

The state Health Department has confirmed 20 students and eight staff members tested positive for salmonella. More than 70 cases are still under investigation.

Officials are struggling to discover the source of the salmonella. A spokesman for the university says no new cases have been confirmed in about two weeks.

Stomachs aren't the only things upset, as some students find the lack of information unnerving.
