Salmonella outbreak linked to ground beef

(FOXNEWS) — Federal health officials say at least 16 people in five states have been sickened by salmonella food poisoning linked to ground beef.

No one has died, but half of those sickened were hospitalized. Most of the illnesses have been in Michigan, but there were a few cases in Arizona, Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced investigative efforts among state, local, and federal public health and regulatory agencies found that ground beef produced by Jouni Meats, Inc. and Gab Halal Foods were the likely sources of this outbreak.
