Salmonella Outbreaks Blamed On Pet Chickens


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Salmonella is on the increase due to the fact that people won't quit snuggling their hens. Ana Kasparian, Francis Maxwell and Brett Erlich, the hosts of The Young Turks, simplify. Tell us just what you believe in the comment section listed below.

" Backyard chicken might appear like a smart idea– just think about all the fresh eggs– however if you begin to snuggle your chickens, you can make yourself seriously sick.

The Centers for Illness Control and Prevention (CDC) state this year has actually already seen eight different salmonella break outs linked to exposure to pet dog chicken in the U.S. Those episodes have sickened more than 370 individuals in 47 states, hospitalizing 71. As well as we're just halfway through 2017.

When the CDC spoke with people in an effort to understand the current outbreaks, nearly fifty percent confessed to cuddling their backyard poultry. And while your birds might be adorable, they're basically staying in their own feces. It's a dish for salmonella." *.

    “Cuddle your chicken” sounds like a sexual euphemism.

    A guide to solve health issues in the USA:

    1) Ban sugar. Use artificial sweeteners instead. Obesity will drop like a stone. Obesity is America’s #1 killer. End the “Fat Pride” movement.
    2) Understand the fact that cancer is NOT the most dangerous thing in the world right now. So don’t ban artificial sweeteners just because of the 1% increase in the chance of getting cancer.
    3) Ban all opioids. They kill WAY more than they cure. They also lead to heroin use, which also kills. Ban opioids.
    4) Ban all ADHD pills, and antidepressants. They, too, kill more than they cure. And while we’re on the topic, end the practice of using “depression” as an excuse for mass shooters to slaughter people in schools.
    5) Wage a war on ALL drugs, not just weed and crack. Give drug dealers life in solitary confinement, which makes prison costs cheaper.
    6) Increase the number of executions from 35 a year to about 3000 a year. Make sure that it is used to target white people and black people EQUALLY. Murder is a huge issue in America. Over 10000 people are killed in the US every year. So the number of executions needs to be more.
    7) Allow all drinks with low alcohol content, like beer and wine, but do away with all drinks with high alcohol content, like vodka, whisky, liquor, etc.
    8) Understand the fact that ending crime is key to solving health issues, given that most of the illnesses in America are caused by rampant drug use. The US has turned into a place where kids/teens are either out on the streets, forming gangs, doing drive-by’s, and killing each other, or are huddled at home, afraid of going out out of fear of getting raped/killed, and self destructing with porn, drugs, ADHD meds, booze, and video games. This plague needs to end.

      One of the ways to end racism in the justice system is to make sure that defendants are judged by a judge and jury of the same race as them. One can also make sure that cops are only allowed to patrol neighbourhoods of the same race as them. This will reduce white on black racism in the justice system.

      But the amount will reduce.

    • Posted by John Myers, at Reply

      QWERTY 123, because the U.S. wouldn’t want to back your faulty opinion? like the banning of sugar and saying it only causes a cancer in a few percentage of Americans? you realize that artificial sweeteners damages kidneys and that’s more likely to kill you than cancer. kidney transplants would never work do to the risk assessment of artificial sweeteners in public, a used donated kidney would never work in the real life scenario.

      everything else you give your opinion on is either a half truth or a bold lie like decreasing the amount of alcohol, like in beer, content which would increase obesity than higher due the increase amount needed to get the same affects, and lower rated wine is already showing the increase of mercury and lead content.
      as for the rest, it’s unconstitutional torture.

      Nope. But salmonella can stay alive in soil for awhile, and not just chickens and other farm animals can carry it in their digestive tracks. Cats, dogs, reptiles and wild animals can carry salmonella. So just like washing your hands after handling a chicken, wash your home-grown vegetables, too, or you can still catch it. Even if all of nature went vegan, this digestive intestinal bacteria would still be present in soil and fecal matter.

      If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, then it must be a chicken, everyone knows that.

    • Posted by Jayne O' Sullivan, at Reply

      Just wash your hands after handling as with all pets. Animals carry many diseases as do humans.

    • Posted by Melly Kidd, at Reply

      Ian Nutter
      Keep your pet chickens away from eating areas, your food and your mouth, and wash your hands properly when you’re done handling them. Salmonella bacteria need to come in touch with mucous membranes of the mouth, or be directly ingested, such as through contaminated food or drink. You should be as fine as long as you’re a responsible owner.

    • Posted by Slim Moose, at Reply

      Ian Nutter, eat them. Problem solved.

    I have chickens and they are beautiful animals and can be held etc. letting them in the house would be a terrible idea unless you like crap on your stuff lol. Just wash your hands after holding them and leave them outside, easy

      I suspect the infections are all in city folk that have never been to a farm, and assume they already know what they’re doing with little research.

  11. Posted by Zach Crawford, at Reply

    Yah, properly cared for chickens don’t stew in their own feces. I know because I have chickens. Like most birds they can’t control where they urinate or defecate so having them in your house is a bad idea.

    • Posted by I'm like you, I have no name, at Reply

      +John Rife Yeah I’m sure they are. I remember my third grade teacher would incubate duck eggs and bring in the little guys for us to pet. She’d always make sure each of us washed our hands and our desks thoroughly afterward. They’re cute, but not very clean.

    • Posted by Amelia Bee, at Reply

      This. They’re messy AF, but I wouldn’t ever want any other pet. Ducks are just so adorable, and affectionate, and silly to watch. <3

    It’s only a matter of time before TYT start jumping up and down in happiness, that a white guy is behind the latest terror attack in London.

    It won’t matter to them at all that the attack was a reaction to those that have come before it.

      Whether or not he was radicalised will come out in the wash eventually. Do you not think though that it has been the jihadists who have incited the most hatred and violence?

    • Posted by James Akers, at Reply

      Also, do you not think that non-Muslims have a right to hate the ideology, which is currently to blame for so much death around the world, and is perpetrated against Muslims and non-Muslims alike almost every day?

    • Posted by Anubis Shill, at Reply

      Islamic fundamentalism is a version of it, but there are many other versions of what is considered far-right. I am an ex-Muslim myself, don’t attempt to use us for your own hateful agenda.

      No one has the right to murder innocent Muslims, and I am sick of bigots like you attempting to justify it with whataboutery and other logical fallacies.

    Bullshit. It’s the factory farming of chickens. No way a small home op can be as dirty as intensive factory farming. It’s damage control. Like when they said woah woah woah You cant call it Swine flu. They can link that back to animals(the hogs). H1N1 is what it shall be called. I bet it wont even be salmonella soon, it will be home cuddling of chicken disease definitely nothing to do with factory farming look away people disease.

    • Posted by scott12black, at Reply

      Vegan Ricks People keeping chickens incorrectly at home can spread salmonella. Emphasis on incorrectly

    • Posted by imnotmike, at Reply

      We’re talking about chickens here – not cuckoos.

    • Posted by Vegan Ricks, at Reply

      I’m sure it’s possible for someone incorrectly keeping chickens at home to inadvertently breed salmonella. I’m more worried about the Tysons of this world. People in their back yards may have a bird or two. legally has to be under 50 birds. More than likely just their family in contact. Larger suppliers can have up to 50,000 per facility. Which ones dirtier ya think with most salmonella? And a company like Tyson how many people you think come into contact with these dead birds. Multiple people slaughtering, plucking, packing, delivering, un packing, testing. Shouldn’t concern me as haven’t eaten the stuff for 7 years. BUT unfortunately someone can go and touch my food and contaminate it.

    • Posted by imnotmike, at Reply

      That’s why poultry needs to be cooked to a higher temperature than meats such as beef and pork. You shouldn’t eat rare chicken, because chickens regularly carry salmonella.

      There are similar issues with pet reptiles. If you have a snake, and you feed it poultry, then you have to change the way you interact with it. A snake that’s been fed poultry is likely to carry salmonella as well, so you then have to be careful never to let it near your face, and to always wash your hands and anything else that comes in contact with the reptile after holding it.

    why is there ducks on the thumbnail? I thought this was about chickens lol

  20. Posted by Roland Taylor, at Reply

    Okay… who wrote the line about “stewing in their own feces?” NOT TRUE – unless you keep them in factory conditions.

    Free range chickens don’t have that problem. Even a moderate amount of freedom prevents that.
