    3/4/2015 two more hospitals, one in L.A. and another in Hartford
    Connecticut, reported patients had become infected with CRE. 4 were infected and
    67 at risk at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. and another 5 infected and
    280 at risk in Hartford Connecticut.

    3/4/2015 A duodenoscope was also responsible for CRE infections at Wisconsin hospitals in 2013 but was
    not reported. Jennifer Miller, a communications specialist with
    Wisconsin's state health department, said the state did not notify the
    FDA or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the
    outbreak or that the scopes appeared to be the source of those
    infections because it isn't required to do so.

    3/4/2015 Another story says that the duodenoscopes that caused the CRE
    infections at the UCLA Medical Center and were sold by Olympus were
    modified and sold without notifying the FDA 90 days prior as required
    by law.
    Rep. Ted Lieu, a newly elected Democratic congressman who represents
    part of Los Angeles, said Wednesday he's considering legislation that
    would require states to report superbug outbreaks and medical device
    failures to certain federal agencies
