The outbreak is happening in multiple states in the eastern US, they are listed inthe article and there is also a map...?

I'm willing to bet it was Easter chicks & ducklings from crappy, questionable sources. :(

It doesn't say, but I understand T*C had put up signs regarding it. As always one should wash/clean up after handling animals, should be obvious but still these things happen.

39 people from 15 different states did not wash their hands...and probably never wash their hands. That is 2.6 people per state. My question is: why doesn't the CDC blame the "outbreak" (really 2.6 people is an outbreak?) on the real culprits? Stupidity!!
