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

Almost 100 people in 29 states have become sick from antibiotic-resistant salmonella linked to raw chicken, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.

Most people recover within a week, but some illnesses can be more severe.

The strain is resistant to antibiotics, according to a statement by the CDC.

"Salmonella can be a frightful infection", said WRAL's Dr. Allen Mask.

In the CDC's investigation notice, the organization said the outbreak strain of SalmonellaInfantis has caused illness in 92 people in 29 states; 21 of those people have been hospitalized due to their symptoms, and no deaths have been reported thus far.

According to the CDC, the patients live in California, Washington, Texas, Nebraska, Missouri, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Hawaii, Massachusetts and Maine.

Salmonella bacteria live in chickens and other animals and raw chicken, as well as eggs, are common sources.

"This is just more of a reason why people need to be following food safety guidelines right now, especially when handling chicken", Ciavarella said, which means washing hands, cooking raw chicken thoroughly and cleaning food preparation areas. Wipe down surfaces that have come into contact with raw meat, and use a separate cutting board. "CDC is not advising that consumers avoid eating properly cooked chicken products, or that retailers stop selling raw chicken products".
