The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 196 people in ten states, including a dozen in Ohio, have contracted e-coli from tainted ground beef. 

28 people have been hospitalized but no deaths are reported. It's an unusual strain of the bacteria called E. Coli O103. The CDC says meat companies Grant Park Packing and Colorado Premium Foods have recalled 170 thousand pounds of ground beef since March, but investigators have not publicly identified where the product was sold.
