One California pet frog breeder may be the source of a nationwide salmonella poisoning outbreak that has lasted for eight months.

Cases of salmonella that have sickened people throughout the United States have been liked to African dwarf frogs from one breeder. The pet frogs were subsequently given away as carnival prizes and sold at pet stores nationwide.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the pet frog salmonella outbreak started in April, and has affected at least 85 people, mostly children, in 31 states as of December 31. At least 16 people were hospitalized in connection to the pet frog salmonella outbreak.

The CDC says that the contaminated frog outbreak is the first known multistate case associated with amphibians, although there have been several such outbreaks connected to turtles and other reptiles. There have been three multistate Salmonella outbreaks connected with turtles since 2006.
