Multi-state salmonella outbreak linked to raw chicken

Drug-Resistant Salmonella Outbreak from chicken- woman buying chicken

Four North Carolinians are among the 92 people in the USA who've now been confirmed to have salmonella after coming in contact with raw chicken, CDC officials said Wednesday.

The Centers for Disease Control has linked 92 cases so far to raw chicken products.

The outbreak strain has been identified in samples taken from raw chicken pet food, raw chicken products, and live chickens.

The CDC said the outbreak started in January, and more people have tested positive for this strain through September. That means it could be widespread in the chicken industry. However, diarrhea for some people may be so severe that they need to be hospitalized. Those who have gotten sick all reported eating different types and brands of chicken from different locations, the CDC said.

"The strain of Salmonella infantis in this outbreak is not susceptible to ciprofloxacin, ceftriaxone, or other antibiotics including ampicillin, chloramphenicol, fosfomycin, gentamicin, kanamycin, nalidixic acid, streptomycin, sulfisoxazole, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, and tetracycline", the CDC said.

Salmonella is very common, and usually causes mild upset stomach, but it can be serious in older people, very young children and people with compromised immune systems, such as cancer patients. Additional food safety tips are available here.

Experts say you should always wash your hands when handling raw meat or poultry, because poultry can spread germs any time you handle it. Cook chicken to a temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit to kill harmful bacteria. All utensils and surfaces that come in contact with raw chicken must also be disinfected.
