U.S. health officials say an E. coli outbreak traced to recalled beef in Michigan and Ohio has spawned cases in three other states.

The Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says New York, Kentucky and Indiana each have one lab-confirmed case of a bacterial infection.

The agency says the new infections match the 41 previously reported cases.

The outbreak has been traced to beef sold in Kroger supermarkets in Michigan and Ohio.

All 44 illnesses in the outbreak are attributed to the same type of E. coli, one that causes a potentially deadly bacterial infection.
