    One person has died and nine others were sickened in six states after apparently eating ground beef contaminated with salmonella, NBC News reported.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported the cases Friday afternoon. Eight of the 10 individuals needed to be hospitalized. The death was reported in California.

    The number of those hospitalized is far greater than what health officials would normally expect to see from salmonella.  

    The preliminary investigation suggests tainted ground beef is to blame, but health officials have not been able to pinpoint a single brand or source.
