Sponsored by:

Salinas, CA — A rash of people getting sick from E.coli has federal officials looking to California.

With 50 cases of E.coli being reported in eight states, an official with the Food and Drug Administration says a special effort is under way in the Salinas Valley to try to find a possible source of contamination.

Officials don´t know the cause of the outbreak, but raw, packaged spinach appears to be the likely source. One Wisconsin resident has already died from the e.coli bacteria.
