COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ten people in Ohio have been sickened with salmonella poisoning in a national outbreak authorities say appears linked to eating ground turkey.
An overall 77 cases in 26 states have been reported. One person has died, but not in Ohio. The state is among those with the highest number of cases.
A spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Health says people became sick from April 22 to June 26.
Three illnesses were reported in Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland. Neighboring Lorain, Lake and Summit counties had reported illness each.
The counties that include Columbus, Toledo and Dayton also had one case each, as did Warren County, near Cincinnati.
The federal government has declined to identify the meat's producer or begin a recall.
