The CDC says there are many types of raw chicken from a variety of places that are making people ill. Across the country, 92 people have gotten sick, including 21 people who have been hospitalized. So far, 29-states are affected. No deaths have been reported.

The CDC is advising people to wash kitchen counters and cutting boards to prevent the spread of salmonella.

People typically get sick 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated foods, and experience diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps. Most people recover within a week, but some illnesses can be more severe. A single, common supplier of raw chicken products or of live chickens has not been identified as of yet.
