Costco's rotisserie chicken salad is the likely cause of an E. coli outbreak in seven states, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The CDC isn't sure what specific ingredient is causing the infections, but so far, 19 people have been diagnosed with the strain. 

No deaths have been reported, but several people have been hospitalized.

Typically, E. coli doesn't cause death but shows symptoms a few days to a week after it enters the body and takes about a week to leave it.

And if this wasn't already obvious, throw away any chicken salad you have from Costco if it was packaged Nov. 20 or before. Costco says it has stopped making and selling the product.
