Drug-Resistant Salmonella Outbreak Likely Linked to Foster Farms Chicken

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are warning consumers of a multi-state outbreak of salmonella infections likely linked to Foster Farms brand chicken that are resistant to multiple drugs. As of May 22, 2014 there have been 574 total cases reported in 27 states.

Many have been hospitalized after falling ill from the food-borne bacteria that began occurring last year. In some cases, victims have developed possible life threatening blood infections.

New infections seem to be linked to recently sold chicken as opposed to chicken stored in home freezers for extended periods.
