West Michigan health officials say the number of people reporting illness after eating at a restaurant in Holland has risen to 150.

The Ottawa County Health Department says Margarita's Mexican Restaurant voluntary shut down after officials started investigating on Thursday. The department launched its probe after getting reports of 10 illnesses, mostly involving nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

Mlive.com reports that samples were sent Monday to a laboratory for analysis and health officials hope to get results Tuesday or Wednesday so they can identify the cause of the illnesses. The department says it's hard to predict the length of time to identify the source of the infection.
