Drug-resistant salmonella linked to raw chicken in 29 states including NC

A salmonella outbreak linked to raw chicken has sickened 10 people in NY and 92 nationally so far.

Nine have been sickened in New Jersey and CT has one reported case, meaning almost one-quarter of those affected from 22 states have come from the tristate area.

But, no specific supplier or product had been identified as the source.

Bellinger leads off vs. Brewers in Game 5
He limited the Brewers this time around to a lone run on three hits and two walks with nine strikeouts over seven innings of work. Because if a dark cloud ends up hanging over the decisive game of the NLCS and L.A. reigns victorious, we've got a problem here.

Of the 92 reported cases, 10 were in NY and nine were in New Jersey, according to the CDC's website. Ill people reported buying many different brands of raw chicken products from multiple stores.

People sick with this strain have experienced stomach pain, cramps, diarrhea and fever 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the bacteria. The strain has shown up in samples from a variety of raw chicken products including pet food, chicken pieces, ground pieces and whole chickens.

The CDC says the outbreak started in January, and more people have tested positive for this strain through September. In rare cases, a salmonella infection can cause death without antibiotic treatment. All utensils and surfaces that come in contact with raw chicken must also be disinfected. Always make sure chicken is thoroughly cooked before serving or eating it.
