Don’t kiss the chickens! Another bacterial outbreak blamed on backyard birds	 	 	 			Chickens on a farm in New Zealand at a feeding time

As of July 13, some 212 people in 44 states had been infected with the outbreak strains of salmonella, the department said in an outbreak advisory.

The CDC said that 27 more people have gotten sick due to salmonella illnesses linked to Kellogg's Honey Smacks.

Salmonella is a microorganism that can cause people to experience fevers, nausea and gastrointestinal problems, which can be serious in children and others with weakened immune systems, the company said.

He stressed the working on a deal towards "zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers, and zero subsidies". Levy cautioned that it would be "wildly unrealistic" to expect a big breakthrough on U.S. -EU trade.

People reported getting chicks and ducklings from a number of sources, including feed supply stores, websites, hatcheries, and from family. The spokesperson said AMPI does not release the names of its customers and declined to say how much whey powder packaged in 50-pound bags and 25-kilogram bags involved in the recall had been distributed. The most cases, 27, have been reported in North Carolina. Infected birds can appear to be healthy and show no signs of illness.

Several different types of Salmonella bacteria have sickened people over the course of this outbreak. There are no deaths attributed to the illness. "The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most persons recover without treatment". The birds carry the bacteria on their feathers, on their feet and in their droppings.

The FDA commissioner stated that the U.S. Department of Agriculture is working with Pinnacle Foods Inc. on a health alert for Hungry Man products that may also contain whey powder tainted with salmonella. If you had stored these products in a seperate container, wash them thoroughly with hot water and antibacterial soap. Children younger than 5 should not handle or touch live poultry without adult supervision. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article. Do not allow live poultry inside the house or around food. Wear separate shoes when caring for poultry, and leave them outside.
