Salmonella in raw chicken sickens 92 people

This particular strain of Salmonellahas demonstrated resistance to multiple antibiotics, meaning treatment may be more hard for severe cases.

Lab evidence found that many types of raw chicken products - including raw chicken pet food and live chickens - resulted in people becoming sick, officials said. The illness has led to 21 hospitalizations.

According to the CDC, as of October 17, 92 people have been reported sick from 29 states, including Florida, and 21 people have been hospitalized.

As an investigation continues, the CDC said the source remains unclear.

A supplier of the raw chicken products or of the live chickens has not yet been identified. "CDC is not advising that consumers avoid eating properly cooked chicken products, or that retailers stop selling raw chicken products".

Always handle raw chicken carefully and cook it thoroughly to prevent food poisoning.

The CDC said testing shows that the outbreak strain of salmonella is resistant to multiple antibiotics that may be used to treat people with severe a salmonella infection. The CDC does recommend pet owners not feed raw chicken to their animals.

People get sick from Salmonella 12 to 72 hours after swallowing the germ and experience diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps.

The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment other than fluids, the CDC says.
