Nineteen workers were hospitalized as a result of a salmonellosis outbreak at a Chicken Kingdom poultry farm in Lipetsk, Russia.

Federal Service for Supervision of Consumers Protection and Welfare officials conducted an inspection, which showed that several workers of the canteen had expired medical records, and that the cooking was made with violation of the sanitary norms.
It was assured, however, that no traces of the infection were exposed in the Chicken Kingdom produce.
