More than half of Ohio's Petland-related Camplyobacter infections are in Franklin County.  The Centers for Disease Control says ten county residents have been treated for infections. They contracted the bacteria after coming into contact with the fecal matter of sick dogs.  Eighteen cases have been reported statewide. Nearly 40 cases have been reported in seven states, all among people who work at or handled dogs from Petland.
