Several people who work for the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta may have been unintentionally exposed to Anthrax.
That word from CDC officials tonight who also say the general public is not at risk.
The employees are being given antibiotics right now.

Early reports show that workers at one lab did not inactivate its samples, which were then moved and used in other labs.
Officials say it's too early to know the long-term effects of the exposure.
