You've probably heard a lot about salmonella in reference to food poisoning, but the latest outbreak isn't about eating cooked animals – it's about touching live ones.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that 93 people in a total of 23 states have been infected with strains of salmonella: specifically, strains known as Salmonella Infantis, Salmonella Newport, and Salmonella Lille. Of those affected, 18 patients have been hospitalized and one death may be related to the outbreak under investigation too.
A large portion – 37% – of the those infected are 10 years old or younger, according to the CDC.

Geez, CNN, you sound like my mother. Next you'll tell me if I don't, I'll go blind. (We'll compromise, though...I'll touch it until I need glasses.)
My chicken! Touch. Touch. Touch.
I don't care what you say. I'm not going to stop ch0king my chicken.
LMFAO! God bless you!
You give a whole new meaning to jerk chicken...
