Eating chicken can lead you to illness: CDC Report

The number of people made ill by a new salmonella outbreak grows, including three in Missouri and two in IL for a total of 79.

The affected products were sold sold in 1-pound (16 oz.) and 3-pound (48 oz.) plastic containers or may have been scooped at the deli counter into clear plastic containers.

"We are still recommending that people do not eat the recalled Spring Pasta Salad purchased from Hy Vee grocery stores, "says the CDC's Dr. Karen Neil".

Food safety attorney Fred Pritzker, who has represented many clients in the Fareway Foods chicken salad Salmonella outbreak that took place in spring 2018, said, "Ready-to-eat foods should never be contaminated with enough pathogenic bacteria to make someone sick". Expiration dates on the recalled product rang between June 22, 2018, and August 3, 2018. Even if some of it was eaten and no one got sick, do not eat it. Customers should either return the product to Hy-Vee for a refund or throw it away. Those who have stored the recalled pasta salad in another container should throw salad away immediately and then wash the container with warm, soapy water before using it again.

The symptoms of a salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever, as well as abdominal cramps. These symptoms typically develop between 8 and 72 hours after contracting it, according to the Mayo Clinic. These cases can turn deadly if not promptly treated with antibiotics. The infection can spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and other parts of the body.

18 people have been hospitalized after consuming the recalled Spring Pasta Salad.

It adds: "Salmonella infection usually isn't life-threatening. Your risk of acquiring salmonella infection is higher if you travel to countries with poor sanitation", it says. Young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems, such as cancer patients, are more likely to become critically ill.
