    A pet hamster blamed for spreading a virus that killed three transplant patients in April has been traced to an Ohio distribution center that supplies hamsters to pet stores throughout the East Coast, officials said Tuesday. State and federal investigators quarantined the distribution center Monday and plan to test the animals for the virus in an effort to trace its origin.

    “We don’t know whether the disease is there or not,” said LeeAnne Mizer, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Agriculture. “It’s a potential threat.”
