At least 92 people in 29 states have been infected with a strain of multidrug-resistant salmonella after coming into contact with a variety of raw chicken products, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday.
The CDC has not identified a common source of contaminated chicken.
Almost 100 people in 29 states have become sick from salmonella linked to raw chicken. The strain has shown up in samples of pet food, chicken pieces, ground check and whole chickens.
The CDC said the outbreak started in January, and more people have tested positive for this strain through September. The CDC was investigating the source and officials at the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service were monitoring the outbreak.
Officials say almost 90% of cases that have been reported have involved preparing or eating chicken products that were purchased raw, including ground chicken, chicken pieces and whole chicken.
