At least 169 sicken by salmonella in chicken livers

CIDRAP at the University of Minnesota has done the math and figures at least 169 people in five states have been sickened by Salmonella Heidelberg in broiled chicken liver products recalled by Schreiber Processing Corp., based in Maspeth, N.Y.

The products appear to be ready to eat but are partially cooked and need to be fully cooked before eaten. Illnesses have also been linked to chopped liver made from the product and sold at retail stores.

Where’s the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in all this?
