U.S. (KXAN/AP) — If you have rotisserie chicken salad from Costco in your refrigerator, the government says you should throw it out.
The CDC says nineteen people in seven states are sick with an E. coli infection linked to the salad.
Five had to go to the hospital, and two of them have kidney failure. The ages of people who have fallen ill range from 5 to 84.
Health workers are still trying to figure out which ingredient in the salad is contaminated. This strain of E. coli can result in death when consumed; so far there are no reported fatalities from the chicken salad.
Costco has pulled the salad from all of its stores nationwide.
So far, no one in Texas has gotten sick.
If you bought the salad it is advised you throw it away immediately.
