MILWAUKEE- A deadly meningitis outbreak has reached seven states nationwide -- but not Wisconsin.

State health officials say there's no confirmed cases in the Badger State, and there's no indication that epidural steroid injections have reached Wisconsin.

Five people have died and dozens have been sickened by the outbreak across seven states -- including Michigan and Indiana.

The injections were supposed to ease back pain.
