Good article tks for posting..
Most of the chicken raised in this country is packed into crammed houses where they walk through feces all day and are pumped full of antibiotics to prevent rampant disease. This environment breeds dirty chickens for lack of a better term - these chickens are then sent to massive slaughtering plants that concentrate the salmonella.
All chickens can carry salmonella but their feces are where it is really prevalent - environments like that concentrate it.
