The CDC just reported that 574 people in 27 states have reported salmonella relating to chicken from Foster Farms (http://www.fosterfarms.com/). One of these has been linked to a man in Georgia. Thirty-seven (37) percent have been reportedly hospitalized and 13% have developed blood infections. No deaths have been reported thus far.
Whats strange about this incident is the fact that the original outbreak was reported over a year ago – March 1, 2013 – and that many of the people interviewed said that they had gotten sick from newly purchased chicken – not chicken that had been previously purchased and frozen.
