(CNN) -- Some 75 Atlanta-based staff of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may have been unintentionally exposed to anthrax, the agency said Thursday.

They are being monitored or provided antibiotics.

"Based on the investigation to date, CDC believes that other CDC staff, family members, and the general public are not at risk of exposure and do not need to take any protective action," the agency said in a statement.
