CDC is trying to identify a Stomach Bug


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is trying to identify a stomach bug that's made nearly 300 people sick. Most of all illnesses have been reported in Texas, Nebraska and Iowa, though there have also been a handful of cases in six other states.

The illness causes flu-like symptoms, but is not usually life-threatening.
