The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to investigate a salmonella outbreak linked to ground beef.

One Texan is among the 10 reported cases, and one person in California has died.

No recall has been issued because the source of the ground beef has not yet been determined.

Consumers are urged to cook ground beef thoroughly to 160 degrees, wash hands with soap and water and thoroughly clean utensils and countertops that may come in contact with ground beef.

The best-by dates are Dec. 9, 2019 and Jan. 8, 2020.

More information can be found on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's website.
