A strain of salmonella that is resistant to multiple antibiotics is making people sick in 29 states, including both Carolinas and Georgia.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says at least 92 people were infected with the strain.

People became ill after they came into contact with several different raw chicken products.

The products include pet food, chicken pieces, ground pieces, and whole chickens.

The bacteria has also been found in live chickens.

Lab tests have not yet identified a common supplier or source of the affected chicken.
