Health authorities say five people have been hospitalized in eastern Hungary, suspected of eating meat infected with anthrax.
Authorities asked people who may have eaten the infected beef to see a doctor as anthrax can be cured with antibiotics if it is diagnosed in time.
Officials said there was no immediate risk of the disease spreading and were vaccinating animals in the area which could possibly be exposed to the bacteria.
