The apparent mishandling of a potentially hazardous radioactive substance by an employee of the University of California-run Los Alamos National
Laboratory has resulted in contamination of sites in four states, according to a report released Monday.
Traces of the substance have been found in homes in Colorado and Kansas that the Los Alamos employee visited, his own home in New Mexico, and also at
the Pennsylvania laboratory where the employee apparently shipped a contaminated package via FedEx.
