As many as 18 US laboratories may have been sent live anthrax samples, according to officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The US military is treating 22 airmen who may have been exposed in South Korea for precautionary reasons.

Officials said it’s unlikely that anyone would have been infected by the anthrax bacteria, though Air Force personnel are being treated out of an abundance of caution.

Army Chief of Staff Raymond Odierno said investigators are looking into the incident, but to this point, human error does not look like the culprit.
