    Salmonella Outbreak Strain Cases Confirmed In Ohio Valley

    Thursday, January 8, 2009 updated: 12:21 am EST January 9, 2009

    ATLANTA -- The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday a nationwide salmonella outbreak that has struck Ohio and 41 other states has put about one in five of its victims in the hospital.

    Nearly 400 people have become ill in the outbreak that might have killed one person.


    The CDC said the same type of salmonella bacteria has been lab-confirmed in 388 cases nationwide.


    Tuscarawas, Belmont and Guernsey Counties have each reported a single case.


    The federal agency is leading the investigation but has not yet determined which foods may have caused people to become sick.


    However, health officials in California, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota and Ohio have confirmed cases.

    Ohio and California reported the most, with 51 cases each.

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had not named all the states, but Ohio health officials have reported at least 50 people in 18 counties have been sickened by salmonella bacteria since October.

    In Michigan, 20 people were reportedly sickened. The state's Department of Community Health said Wednesday that seven Michigan patients required hospitalization

    Most people infected with salmonella develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.

    Officials said steps to protect against the illness include careful handling and preparation of raw meat and frequent hand washing.
    Great avatar Regal as for the outbreak, yikes. We had a breakout here in one of our local hospitals about 6 years ago one reason I will not touch anything man made or that comes out of the tap anymore. Some scary stuff when you look at the amount of people that get affected by this. It's really a shame.
