Dozens Fall Ill In Multi-State Salmonella Outbreak Linked To Chicken

CDC 92 Cases of Salmonella That's Resistant to 'Multiple Antibiotics' Reported 3 Cases in Minnesota

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an antibiotic-resistant salmonella strain responsible for the illnesses was found in live chickens as well as in many types of raw chicken products, indicating that it might be widespread in the chicken industry.

Testing has shown that the strain of bacteria that has made people sick has been resistant to multiple antibiotics. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment. Symptoms can be worse for people with underlying medical conditions, children under 5 and people older than 65, as they typically have weaker immune systems. "You can see vomiting, fever, lots of diarrhea and so forth". Rather, it says there's evidence that many types of raw chicken products from a variety of sources contain the strain known as salmonella infantis that is making people ill. Other cases were in Alabama, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.

"It's been spread out over a long period of time", he said. Don't wash chicken before you cook it, as doing so can spread germs to other surfaces.


Cooking chicken thoroughly can destroy the bacteria. "CDC is not advising that consumers avoid eating properly cooked chicken products, or that retailers stop selling raw chicken products".

Additionally, the CDC does not recommend raw diets for pets, as this can make animals, as well as people handling the raw food, sick.
