ABC and other sources have reported a listeria outbreak in three different states that has sickened 10 people. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believe the cause of the listeria outbreak ties back to deli meats.
10 people from Florida, Massachusetts, and New York have been sent to the hospital. One person in Florida has died.
9 of the 10 listeria victims reported eating Italian-style meats, like salami. The CDC has yet to determine a common meat or supplier as the definite source.
Of those infected with the listeria, most were female and around 81 years of age. People 65 and older are more at risk of becoming terribly sick and possibly dying from listeria.
