Default am radio - war of the worlds

likely a nothing burger, but . . .

am radio surfing this evening - was picking up stations from 800 miles away
texas, minnesota, nebraska, chicago, canada -

in the blur of the static - heard only a snippet - something about 300 cases cdc recalling people 40% cfr - and then it cut out

-- felt like I was listening to HG Wells War of the Worlds being read on air

if it is real - should be hearing about it soon - otherwise - nothing burger

A salmonella outbreak linked to raw chicken from California involves several antibiotic-resistant strains of the disease and has put at least 42% of the victims in the hospital, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday.

A multi-state Salmonella outbreak is exactly the scenario food safety advocates and lawmakers warned about when the federal government was forced to shutdown last week.
Now that nightmare has come true,,,
