The recall is an expansion of another that was announced in June.

Organizers with the Dixie Classic Fair are taking extra precautions to try to prevent another Legionnaires’ disease outbreak in North Carolina.

The fair, slated to bring thousands to the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds this weekend, is banning the use of mist fans and fairgoers are not allowed to bring their own handheld mist fans.
