Deadly Salmonella outbreak kills one, hospitalizes 22 – can the U.S. keep its food supply safe?

A deadly salmonella outbreak from ground turkey has spread to 26 states, claimed one life and hospitalized 22 others. Federal health officials say it may be more resistant than usual to antibiotics.

The outbreak has been traced to ground turkey production at the Cargill plant in Arkansas. And with all the talk about budget cuts, the incident has renewed questions about the safety of our food and whether cutting funding to groups like the Food and Drug Administration can keep the food supply safe.

On American Morning this morning, David Acheson, Leavitt Partners's Managing Director of Food and Safety Import Practice and former Chief Medical Officer for the Food and Drug Administration, discusses the outbreak and how budget cuts could hamper our chances of spotting outbreaks sooner.
