SALMONELLA OUTBREAK FROM UNKNOWN SOURCE SPREADS TO 29 STATES
This outbreak is just one of four multistate salmonella outbreaks that the CDC is currently investigating.
While the outbreak of Salmonella Oranienburg has an unknown food source, two others have been linked to Italian style-meats and raw frozen breaded stuffed chicken products.
According to the CDC, most people who become infected with the bacteria have diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps with symptoms lasting up to seven days.
However, children younger than 5 years old, adults 65 and older, and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk for severe illnesses that require medical treatment or hospitalization, the CDC said.
