Got Chickens?

Being a food safety fanatic, I think we should be all reminded that poultry does have its drawbacks in that it carries the dreaded bacterial cause of food poisoning, Salmonella species. Recently, a current trend is to raise your own chickens that provide us those wonderful fresh eggs daily. One might forget that those adorable birds could be a source of Salmonella. What to do? It’s simple. No need for paranoia,  just wash your hands often with soap and warm water, especially after handling any raw meat or those pets who just might live in our backyards.

From the Centers for Disease Control Morbidity Tables, there were 46,367 reported cases of Salmonellosis from all sources or causes in 2015.
