WASHINGTON (WCMH) — A brand of kosher chicken has been linked to a deadly salmonella outbreak.
The CDC said Wednesday that one person has died and 16 others have become ill.
There have been reports in Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
The victims’ ages range from an infant to 76 years old.
Several people who became ill reported eating ‘Empire Kosher’ brand chicken.
The CDC isn’t telling customers to avoid that brand, but they’re reminding people about safe food preparation.
The CDC began an outbreak investigation in June after several cases were reported in New York among people who said they had consumed the kosher chicken.
