Salmonella Outbreak That Sickened 134 in 13 States Is Over: CDC

A total of 134 people in 13 states were sickened in a salmonella outbreak linked to chicken produced by Foster Farms of Livingstone, Calif., according to a final investigation released Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Thirty-one percent of the infected people were hospitalized, but no deaths were reported. Most of the illnesses occurred in two states, Oregon (40) and Washington (57).

The outbreak appears to be over, the CDC said.

However, the agency noted that raw poultry from any producer can have salmonella. That's why it's important for consumers to follow proper food safety steps when handling raw poultry to help protect themselves and others from food-borne illness.
