What’s the problem?

August 30, 2018 – The salmonella infection cases linked to the kosher chicken have been reported in New York (11), Maryland (1), Pennsylvania (4) and Virginia (1), according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Of these, 8 have required hospitalization due to the severity of their symptoms — including one person who died in New York, the agency said.

In CDC interviews on people with illnesses related to this outbreak, “people reported eating kosher chicken, and when asked about the specific brand eaten, several people reported Empire Kosher brand,” the agency said.
