A salmonella outbreak linked to Foster Farms chicken isn’t over and has now infected 524 people in 25 states and Puerto Rico, federal health officials said.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in January that the outbreak, which has been going on since March 2013, appeared to be over. But the agency said there was an uptick in illnesses in February.
It released the latest figures on Wednesday. Though no one has died, the CDC says the outbreak strains have been resistant to several commonly prescribed antibiotics, and 37 percent of those infected have been hospitalized, a higher rate than normal.
