Salmonella in raw chicken makes 92 people sick, CDC says

According to an investigation notice put out by the Centers for Disease Control, 92 people have been infected with a strain of Salmonella in 29 states, including Georgia.

New Jersey (9 cases) and MA (9 cases) are among the worst hit of the 29 states in the outbreak of the multidrug-resistant strain, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials said.

The outbreak strain has been identified in live chickens and raw chicken products, not from any one supplier, health officials said.

The outbreak strain is present in live chickens and in many types of raw chicken products, indicating it might be widespread in the chicken industry.

At least 20 people have been hospitalized across the country.

In order to avoid being sick, the CDC says to wash your hands before working with food.

The CDC recommended that consumers handle raw chicken carefully and cook it thoroughly to prevent infection.

Five cases of multi-drug resistant salmonella infantis illness has reported by the Illinois Dept. of Public Health.

Lab evidence points to raw chicken being the source of contamination, and people are reporting eating different types and brands of chicken products purchased from different locations.

Symptoms, which typically begin 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the bacteria, include diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps and can last four to seven days.

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service advises that all raw chicken products, including chicken breasts, whole chickens, and ground poultry such as chicken burgers and chicken sausage, should always be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F to kill harmful germs. Germs in raw chicken can spread to other foods and kitchen surfaces.

More information can be found on the CDC website.
