Topeka (WIBW) - The Kansas Department of Health and Environment and local health agencies are investigating 20 salmonella cases, trying to determine if they're connected to the recall of a half-billion eggs nationwide.

KDHE says the subtype matches the the variety associated with the massive recall, but adds that it's a very common type which makes it harder to know for sure if they're related.

The 20 cases were reported between May 1st and August 20th. Six of the victims had to be hospitalized.

There have been between 8 and 22 cases reported in each of the past five years.
