“A single, common supplier of raw chicken products or of live chickens has not been identified,” the CDC said in a statement.

The drug-resistant strain of Salmonella making people sick has been found in samples taken from raw chicken pet food, raw chicken products and live chickens, which the CDC said indicates the outbreak may be widespread in the chicken industry.
