There’s an Salmonella Outbreak and the Government is Shutdown

by Rachel Baker on October 9, 2013

Scientists are closer to figuring out what’s killing the bees. Just a reminder, without Bees, there is a significant decrease in the food supplies.

While the government is shut down, with food-safety personnel and disease detectives sent home and forbidden to work, a major foodborne-illness outbreak has begun. This evening, the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the US Department of Agriculture announced that “an estimated 278 illnesses … reported in 18 states” have been caused by chicken contaminated with Salmonella Heidelberg and possibly produced by the firm Foster Farms.

“FSIS is unable to link the illnesses to a specific product and a specific production period,” the agency said in an emailed alert. “The outbreak is continuing.”
