LIVINGSTON, Calif. (AP) — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says a salmonella outbreak traced to three Foster Farms poultry plants in California appears to be over after sickening 430 people.
CDC officials said Thursday that no deaths have been reported and 38 percent of the people it had information on had been hospitalized.
A CDC representative told the Modesto Bee (http://bit.ly/1aA55VS ) on Friday that infections have returned to baseline levels, indicating the company has taken effective measures to bring the outbreak under control
Foster Farms also did not recall any chicken, but in October a Costco store in South San Francisco voluntarily recalled its rotisserie chicken and some other products that originated from Foster Farms.
