Agencies investigating E. coli that sickened 14

The Toledo Blade reports that The outbreak of E. coli bacteria in Toledo that sickened 14 people appears to have been from contaminated beef.
13 of those who got sick have recovered. An elderly woman from Lucas County died, but investigators are trying to determine whether pre-existing health problems caused her death.
Health officials suspect a Toledo catering company, or a supplier to the company in question, might be the source of the outbreak.
In addition to an Ohio Department of Health epidemiologist, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has two epidemiologists and a medical student aiding in the investigation.
