The strain has shown up in samples from a variety of raw chicken products including pet food, chicken pieces, ground pieces and whole chickens.

New York, New Jersey and MA had the highest reported number of people infected by Salmonella Infantis.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now investigating the outbreak and reported 21 hospitalizations so far, though no deaths have been reported.

CDC officials are advising people handle raw chicken carefully, specifically by washing their hands before and after preparing food and cooking chicken thoroughly.

Lab tests haven't been able to successfully trace the source of the tainted chicken, so the organization can not release any supplier names or product information at the moment. The CDC continues to investigate the outbreak.

"This outbreak is a reminder that raw chicken can have germs that spread around food preparation areas and make you sick", the investigation notice read.

Salmonella's symptoms usually start 12 to 72 hours after a person comes into contact with the risky bacteria, according to the Mayo Clinic.

The CDC has called the rise in infections from antibiotic-resistant bacteria "a global threat", saying at least 23,000 people die yearly and 2 million become infected in the USA alone.

See your healthcare provider if you are concerned about symptoms, such as a high fever (temperature over 101.5˚F), blood in your poop, diarrhea, or frequent vomiting that prevents keeping liquid down. If possible, use a separate cutting board for raw chicken and other raw meats. Germs in raw chicken can spread to other foods and kitchen surfaces.

Both the CDC and the USDA are monitoring the outbreak and will provide more information as they become available. This result provides more evidence that people in this outbreak got sick from handling or eating raw or undercooked chicken.
