Last week, the CDC warned of a Listeria outbreak believed to be linked to deli meat that has sickened 10 people across multiple states.

The agency issued a warning about the outbreak on Friday. Ten people spanning Florida, Massachusetts and New York have been hospitalized so far. One person in Florida has died.

According to the agency, deli meat is likely the source of the outbreak as nine of the 10 victims reported eating Italian-style meats like salami, mortadella, and prosciutto.
