Easter Eggs, Baby Chicks…and Pathogens

A North Carolina State University researcher says parents getting ready for Easter holiday activities should be careful that their children aren't putting themselves at risk for salmonella.

Professor Ben Chapman says baby chicks and eggs can both carry the illness. This month, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 96 cases of salmonella nationwide were linked to handling young poultry birds last spring.

Undercooked or raw eggs have also been repeatedly linked to salmonella outbreaks.
