Vermont Health Department issues chick warning

Continue reading below

The Vermont Health Department is investigating an infant salmonella case after a child came into contact with a chick. The Health Department says the child’s illness was caused by the same strain of salmonella discovered in the chicks that were recently purchased from a local feed store. The department says dozens of people in several states have also been infected with the same strain of salmonella. Vermont officials are working with other state health departments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the US Department of Agriculture to find the source of the baby poultry infection. Among the suggestions to reduce the spread off the disease are not to let children younger than 5 handle young poultry.
