WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTAQ) - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control say at least 16 people in five states have gotten sick from salmonella linked to ground beef that was recalled last week.

Most of the illnesses have been in Michigan, where the beef was made – but there have been scattered illnesses in Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, and Arizona.

Seven of the 16 victims ate a ground beef dish called kibbeh at a suburban Detroit restaurant.

That spurred warnings which discouraged consumers from eating uncooked meat.

The cases were linked to a recall of over a-thousand pounds of ground beef from two businesses in Michigan – Jouni Meats and Gab Halal Foods.
