E.coli Outbreak Sickens Seven People From Four States in US

A multistate outbreak of E.coli has sickened seven people, sending five to the hospital according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The CDC said that the outbreak of E. coli, which can cause intestinal illnesses, likely is linked to beef products from Adams Farms Slaughterhouse in Athol, Massachusetts.

People from 1 year old to 74 years old have become sick. They're from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. No deaths have been reported.

The CDC says five people who were interviewed said they'd eaten ground beef in the week before getting sick and that tests conducted in Connecticut on leftover ground beef from an ill person's home and a restaurant found E. coli.

The CDC says Adams Farm Slaughterhouse recalled various cuts of beef, veal and bison products.
