Salmonella in Free Range “Backyard” Chickens making people SICK again: Food for the Birds & the CDC

Organic chicken wings or eggs are no guarantee against Salmonella and food poisoning. Choose wisely. The CDC is investigating eight separate multi-state outbreaks of salmonella that have sickened nearly 400 people across the country. The cause, however, isn’t an unsanitary factory. Instead, blame backyard chickens, or at least owners who underestimate the risk of getting too close, reports the Fresno Bee.

The growing popularity of having a home-grown source of eggs once again has federal officials issuing a warning. This year’s numbers are about on par with last year’s, when 895 people got sick.

While three people died last year, none have died this year, though 71 have ended up in the hospital. In all, people in 47 states have fallen ill.

Cuddling cute baby chicks appears to be a problem, notes the Washington Post. Last year, about half of those who got sick admitted to doing so, and about half also said they let their poultry in the house.

Health officials say both practices are seriously unwise, given how easily chickens can spread germs. The hardest-hit state is Ohio, at 32 cases, with Kentucky, Tennessee, and California not far behind, reports

Through a series of divine interventions, God began calling David into the full-time ministry in 2006. At the time he was a legal service broker and on an ambitious path. Although he had other plans, David started responding to God’s call. He prayed, “Lord, if it isn’t your will I succeed, please don’t allow me to.” Listen to a brief portion of David’s story of how God led him where he is today.
