#2 What is Salmonella
Now the question is, what exactly is Salmonella? So it is a rod shaped bacteria that belongs to the Enterobacteriaceae family. Salmonellae are found worldwide in both cold-blooded and warm-blooded animals, and in the environment. Strains of Salmonella cause illnesses such as typhoid fever, paratyphoid fever and food poisoning.
The chicken is infected by Salmonella. According to a news release from the USDA, the affected chicken was produced between August 25, 2015 and September 17, 2015 with "best if used by" dates between August 23, 2016 and December 15, 2016. The original recall included products with "best if used by" dates as early as July 14, 2016. Also, five people who became ill in Minnesota were linked to the contaminated chicken.
