CDC warns of new strain of Salmonella that’s resistant to antibiotics

News

(WIVB)– The CDC is issuing a warning about a new strain of Salmonella that’s resistant to antibiotics.

The disease affects more than a million people every year. Most of them recover without any medication, but serious cases require antibiotics.

A new strain of the infection isn’t responding as well to those medications.

It’s killed two people since last June.

The CDC traced the bacteria to beef in the US and cheese in Mexico.
