Consumers and retailers are advised by the CDC to handle raw chicken carefully and to cook it thoroughly.
“This outbreak is a reminder that raw chicken can have germs that spread around food preparation areas and make you sick,” the investigation notice read.
Washing raw poultry and other raw meats before cooking is not advised — as germs can spread to other kitchen surfaces or utensils.
The CDC also recommends washing hands frequently and to avoid feeding pets raw food.

The outbreak strain of Salmonella Infantis has been identified in samples from raw chicken pet food, from raw chicken products from 58 slaughter and/or processing establishments, and from live chickens. Samples collected at slaughter and processing establishments were collected as part of FSIS’s routine testing under the Salmonella performance standards. Furthermore, WGS showed that the Salmonella from these samples is closely related genetically to the Salmonella from ill people. This result provides more evidence that people in this outbreak got sick from handling or eating raw or undercooked chicken.
Why are you posting this? All that’s going to happen is yet another forum or post gets shut down because you complain to the moderator. Ever wonder why things get turned off only once you get involved?
Thanks for posting this. This mirrors the turkey outbreak in which numerous people were infected, most through handling turkey for their own consumption. However, two children became ill, one severely with osteomyelitis, through product that was used to produce raw dog food.
I see in this outbreak as well one person reported to have contacted through the raw diet fed to their pet.
This report reminds me of the important work of the One Health initiative. The health of people and animals is interconnected. These outbreaks serve as a call to improve the health of the flocks and the processing of poultry to prevent the problem at the source.
And a reminder for everyone to practice good hygiene and safety measures whenever working with any animal based protein whether intended for people or pets, kibble included.
Thanks. Very sad that these inappropriate posts are allowed to stand. Speaks volumes….
Don’t feed the troll…except perhaps a little raw chicken.
