CDC Reports that Salmonella Infections are Linked to Contact with Live Poultry in Backyard Flocks, 2018

The CDC and multiple states are investigating several multistate outbreaks of Salmonella infections linked to contact with live poultry in backyard flocks. Several different types of Salmonella have made people sick in this outbreak including: S. Montevideo, S. Infantis, S. Enteritidis, S. Indiana, and S. Litchfield. As of July 13, 2018, 212 people infected with the outbreak strains of Salmonella have been reported from 44 states. 34 ill people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported. 26% of the ill people were children younger than 5 years. WGS analysis to identify antibiotic resistance Twenty-two/118 isolates from ill people contained genes expected to cause resistance or decreased susceptibility to all or some of the following antibiotics: ampicillin, streptomycin, sulfamethoxazole, tetracycline, gentamicin, ceftriaxone, amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, cefoxitin, ciprofloxacin, and fosfomycin. Ninety-six isolates did not identify predicted resistance. Some infections may be difficult to treat with commonly recommended antibiotics, and may require another kind of antibiotic. @ https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/backyard-flocks-06-18/index.html" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/backyard-flocks-06-18/index.html
