A year-long outbreak of salmonella poisoning linked to Foster Farms chicken has now sickened more than 500 people in 25 states and health officials say recently purchased raw poultry appears to be the culprit.

Officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Wednesday that the outbreak that involves seven rare strains of ****-resistant Salmonella Heidelberg appears to be continuing, despite efforts to stop it.

“Basically, what we’re saying is the outbreak is not over,” said Dr. Rob Tauxe, the CDC’s deputy director of foodborne, waterborne and environmental diseases. “As the new cases have been reported, almost all of them report eating chicken and almost all say it’s Foster Farms.”

CDC officials had originally declared the outbreak that began in March 2013 over in January, but then officials detected more than the expected number of infections caused by the rare salmonella strains.

I've not,seen that brand around here.

However, I treat all raw chicken as if it is riddled with salmonella. I wear disposable gloves when handling it. After I have put it on to cook, every area on the counter, plus the sink, bowls, knives, etc are scrubbed with bleach. I don't take chances.
