A salmonella outbreak linked to raw chicken from California involves several antibiotic-resistant strains of the disease and has put at least 42% of the victims in the hospital, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday.
Nw we find out why they are so worried. There are at least 7 different stains involved. And several are antibiotic resistant.
But moreworrisome – a much higher number of people than normal are ending up hospitalized. At least 42%.
A lot of those in the hospital are septic, which can be life threatening.
So getting the CDC up to speed fast was essential.
