This is part of a multi-state outbreak which includes 92 cases in 29 states and is being investigated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC identified the particular strain as salmonella infantis but said it had not yet linked the raw chicken products or live chickens to one lone supplier.

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.

The CDC said on Thursday that it is seeing 92 cases of salmonella from raw chicken products, including everything from pet food to chicken tenders.

The CDC said on Wednesday that 21 people had been hospitalized but no deaths had yet been reported.

The CDC said it was working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and representatives from the chicken industry to discuss steps that they might take to reduce Salmonella contamination.

- There is an outbreak of drug-resistant salmonella in 29 states including Texas. Also, one person got sick after pets in their home ate raw ground chicken pet food.

See your healthcare provider if you are concerned about symptoms, such as a high fever (temperature over 101.5˚F), blood in your poop, diarrhea, or frequent vomiting that prevents keeping liquid down.

Finally, to prevent the spread of germs, wash your hands frequently, especially before and after preparing or eating food, after contact with animals, and after using the restroom or changing diapers.

Salmonella normally causes mild upset stomach, but it can be serious in the elderly, young children and those with compromised immune systems. Additional food safety tips are available here.

The good news is that all chicken is safe to eat once it has been thoroughly cooked.

Health officials say the outbreak should serve as a reminder to always cook raw chicken carefully and thoroughly, as it may contain germs can that spread around food prep areas and make people sick.

Some people may like to feed their cats and dogs raw chicken, but the CDC recommends against it.
