  • If you just ate it tonight the chance that it is already making you sick is slim. Chances are you are just over reacting. How much did you actually eat? And how pink was it?

  • Salmonella is the most common contaminant in raw chicken. It is does NOT pass into breast milk. In fact breast mill can help keep a baby well who may have been exposed.

    Salmonella takes just a. Few hours to make you sick. Usually 6 hours.
