CDC reports twenty-nine state salmonella outbreak
The CDC says a new outbreak of antibiotic resistant salmonella linked to raw chicken has sickened ninety-two people from twenty nine states, including Kentucky.
Twenty-one people have been hospitalized.
The agency did not identify a common source of the contamination. However, it found the outbreak strain in live chickens, raw chicken pet food, and other raw products.
The CDC reminds consumers to always handle raw chicken carefully and cook it to 165 degrees.
