Local News

An E-coli outbreak in the U.S. has spread to 10 states.

Federal officials  say more than 150-people have been infected with the disease. The illness is linked to tainted ground beef eaten at home as well as restaurants.

The CDC says 20 of the victims had to be hospitalized, but no fatalities have been reported.

The 2 closest states to ours on the list are Ohio and Virginia. 

No supplier, distributor or brand of beef has been identified.

Officials say you can prevent the spread of E.coli by cooking ground beef properly and by washing hands while preparing the meat.
