This is the state of America in 2021. We have created and funded a federal agency that takes it upon itself to nag people to not kiss their chickens because 163 people (out of over 300 million) may have gotten sick from it. Really? This is what we want our federal government doing?
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has urged people to refrain from kissing live poultry amid an outbreak of salmonella.
The CDC and public health officials are investigating salmonella outbreaks after 163 people were reported ill in 43 states.
The infections have been linked to contact with backyard poultry.
“Don’t kiss or snuggle the birds, as this can spread germs to your mouth and make you sick,” the health agency said
Some 34 people have been taken to hospital since mid-February, but no deaths have been reported.
