SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have a warning for pet owners this season: Don’t dress up your chickens for Halloween.
According to the CDC, chicken owners should keep costumes off their feathered friends — and don’t bring them inside to cuddle — even if their chickens look healthy.
A salmonella outbreak is currently affecting approximately 100 people in 29 states, and authorities are advising against close and constant contact with live poultry.
Luckily, there haven’t been any reports of salmonella linked to live birds in Utah yet, but you can never be too careful.
