We told you Tuesday, about the salmonella outbreak that has sickened nearly 300 people.
Well now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has called 30 employees back to work who had been furloughed during the government shutdown, in order to help stop the salmonella outbreak.
This comes after the CDC announced that some of the salmonella strains in this outbreak are resistant to one or more antibiotics. The agency said 42 percent of those sickened have been hospitalized.
"That's a high percentage," Barbara Reynolds, a CDC spokeswoman told USA Today. "You would expect about 20 percent hospitalizations with salmonella Heidelberg."
The outbreak has been traced to raw chicken products produced by Foster Farms.
A spokesman for Foster Farms says no recall was in effect and that the infections were caused by eating chicken that was undercooked or improperly handled.
The products have one of three establishment numbers inside a USDA mark of inspection or elsewhere on the package. The numbers are: P6137, P6137A and P7632.
Health officials warned that consumers should fully cook raw poultry to 165 degrees, which will kill the bacteria. Careful steps should be taken when handling raw chicken has well, to avoid cross contamination.
