May 20, 2021

The CDC announced that they are currently investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to backyard poultry, like chickens and ducks. As of May 20, 2021, a total of 163 people infected with one of the outbreak strains have been reported from 43 states. 34 people of the total have required hospitalization but no deaths have been reported to date. Illnesses started on dates ranging from February 12, 2021, to April 25, 2021.

According to the outbreak notice, backyard poultry can carry Salmonella germs even if they look healthy and clean and these germs can easily spread to anything in the areas where they live and roam. So, people can get sick from touching backyard poultry or anything in their environment and then touching their mouth or food, and swallowing Salmonella germs.

Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps 6 hours to 6 days after being exposed to the bacteria and the illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and many recover without treatment.
