U.S. Health investigators say they have found positive samples if salmonella bacteria in the feed that was given to chickens at the two Iowa based farms where the outbreak began. The FDA says the DNA fingerprint matches that of the salmonella involved in the outbreak, which indicates that both farms had contaminated eggs and that the chicken feed was the source. Investigators must now track the source of the feed to see where it leads, since many feed ingredients come from different farms. They’re also not sure if the chicken feed is the only source of the salmonella…so the investigation continues. So far, the salmonella contamination has sickened nearly two thousand people.
