Increase in Salmonella Outbreaks Linked to Backyard Chicken Farms
According to CDC data, between 1990 and 2005, a total of 17 LPAS outbreaks with a median size of 12 case-patients were reported. Between 2006 and 2014, 36 LPAS outbreaks were reported and these had a median size of 41 case-patients per outbreak. That’s more than twice as many outbreaks in under half the time and, according to the CDC, entirely due to increased exposure from backyard chicken farms.
