An outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium linked to chicken salad has sickened another 105 people, bringing the total to 170 in seven states, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday. That's up from 65 cases in five states, with three in Nebraska, during the third week of February. No deaths have been reported, but 62 people have been hospitalized.

Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman Leah Bucco-White said the infected Nebraskans were two men and three women, ranging in age from their 50s to their 80s. (Most cases have been in Iowa.) The newly infected people likely purchased the contaminated chicken salad from Fareway stores before it was recalled, according to the CDC.

At the time, more than 20,000 pounds of potentially contaminated premade chicken salad was recalled by Triple T Specialty Meats, Inc.

A joint investigation conducted by the CDC and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) linked the outbreak to chicken salad produced by Triple T Specialty Meats Inc., sold from January 4 to February 9 at Fareway locations in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota. However, Triple T failed to announce a recall of its own until February 21, when it pulled 20,600 pounds of chicken salad made January 2-Feb.

ESPN released a statement Friday night, announcing McDonough's return to calling college games after two years in the MNF booth. Tessitore has been with ESPN since 2002 and primarily has provided play-by-play for college football broadcasts.

The CDC recommends throwing away all recalled chicken salad from Fareway stores (even if no one who ate it got sick) and sanitizing all countertops and other surfaces where the recalled chicken salad was stored.

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection, called salmonellosis, typically start 6 to 72 hours after exposure to Salmonella bacteria.

Symptoms include fever, chills, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, headache, nausea and vomiting.

Salmonella poisoning can be an incredibly serious situation, leading to fever, diarrhea, and cramping. The illness lasts about 4 to 7 days. In rare cases, salmonella can be deadly unless a patient receives prompt treatment with antibiotics. No deaths have been confirmed but 62 people have been hospitalized.
