An Akron postal official says seven Akron, Youngstown and Toledo postal workers are taking antibiotics as a precaution against anthrax. The workers handled stamps shipped from the distribution center in Brentwood, near Washington, D.C. That's the same facility that processed an anthrax-tainted letter sent to Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle. Luanne Daigneault, a spokeswoman for the Akron post office says samples of boxes in the cities' stamp distribution centers have tested negative for anthrax. But the postal service recommended that the employees get the treatment to be safe. Daigneault says 35 boxes of stamps in Akron, two boxes of stamps in Akron, two boxes in Toledo and two in Youngstown came from the Brentwood distribution center.
