  • Two dead 768 ill amid Salmonella outbreak affecting 48 states CDC says

The majority of infections have been linked to backyard poultry, specifically chickens and ducklings, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

A separate outbreak of salmonella infections linked to backyard poultry flocks has sickened 768 people from 48 states, including 122 people who were hospitalized and two deaths, one in OH and one in Texas, the CDC said.

93 people from 27 states have gotten sick in connection to these pet treats.

"We have had 56 salmonella cases in Tennessee associated with the poultry outbreak and no cases associated with the pig ear dog treats", said Bill Christian, a spokesman for the Tennessee Department of Health.

The dog treats had been sold at more than 400 Pet Supplies Plus stores in 33 states. Tackling this outbreak is more hard than other Salmonella outbreaks due to its nature - poultry carries Salmonella and can infect anyone who isn't careful when interacting with the birds and their environment.

Two people are dead and 768 people have fallen ill amid a Salmonella outbreak that is affecting 48 states, including Indiana. Since that date, the agency revealed in an updated advisory, another 489 people located across eight states have been added to the investigation.

Consumers who purchased the product should throw them away in a secure container so that your pets and other animals can't eat them.

Pet owners are urged to wash their hands thoroughly after touching their pets' food, and not to use their pet's feeding bowl for their own food.

It is advised to contact your pet's veterinarian if your dog or cat has these signs of illness or you are concerned that your pet may have Salmonella infection.

The CDC reported on Tuesday that the outbreak is linked to contact with backyard poultry, such as chicks and ducklings, from multiple hatcheries are the likely source of these outbreaks.

Symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after consuming a contaminated product.

The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment.

Although people may keep their coops clean, health officials say it is possible to get sick after coming into contact with harmful bacteria, including salmonella, on the feathers, feet, and beaks of live poultry.
