Arizona death may be linked to European E. coli
(AP) -- Health officials say the death of an Arizona resident who recently traveled to Germany may be linked to the food-poisoning outbreak in Europe.
If confirmed, it would be the first U.S. death tied to the outbreak.
So far, there have been five confirmed cases in the United States connected to the outbreak. Those cases are in Michigan, Massachusetts, Wisconsin and North Carolina.
Officials have traced the outbreak to raw vegetable sprouts from a farm in northern Germany.
