Backyard Chickens Sicken Kids

According to Food Safety News, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that one strain has sickened 49 people in 16 states, and the other strain has caused 22 people to get sick in 12 states. The cases have been reported from people who are buying the chickens as backyard egg producers or as pets. Investigations conclude that most of the purchased chickens came from Mt. Healthy Hatchery in Ohio.
