Salmonella Outbreak in over 13 States…

With four recent cases of Salmonella poisoning reported, the multi-state Salmonella Heildeberg outbreak has now sickened 128 people in 13 states since June 4, 2012. The Centers for Disease Control believes that chicken consumption is the most likely source of the infection.While the strain has been sickening people since last June, so far there have been no deaths and no recall issued. The CDC reports that data from the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) from 2002 to 2011 shows that 233 retail samples tested positive for the same bacteria. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service is currently working to determine the source of infections in the outbreak and state public officials are interviewing those struck by this strain.
