Another Salmonella Outbreak

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating a national salmonella outbreak. This recent outbreak is caused by the strain salmonella Typhimurium, which also caused an outbreak back 2006. As of Sept. 3, at least 388 people have become infected with this strain of salmonella, sending just under 70 people to the hospital to seek treatment. The majority of the cases are focused in California, Ohio, and Minnesota, but the public health departments of 42 states are participating in the ongoing investigation.

The cause of the outbreak is still undetermined, but the best way to avoid the bacteria is to thoroughly cook meat, poultry, and eggs, wash your hands thoroughly and often when cooking, and keep produce and meat separate during food preparation. Most people experience symptoms eight to 48 hours after becoming infected.

I sure do hope none of you will need to change your negative answer on my poll about food poisoning.

Oh man, this we're going to have a ton of people coming in to the hospital to get tested for Salmonella when they probably have nothing serious. Of course, it's good to make sure, but if you just have a little bit of diarrhea, it probably isn't Salmonella.

it always scares me when you hear about this since you know that it's going to go from being in a handful of states to being nationwide, and then a ton of farmers and producers are going to suffer for the mistakes of a few others, and it's an endless cycle. i just hope that they are able to figure this one out quickly to minimize the fears that we all have.

I think the deregulation on hygiene, sanitation with food and the processing even without the labels on producer, and the climate warming, which trnslates into the drastic temperature change, are most likely to spark the bacteria-related disease. Then now the economy and ecology can not be split into the two different matters ultimately, as we all can see in the case of the car manufacturers, I think. THANKS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION / TIME !
