I saw this today, and thought all of you that have feeders may be interested in this. Apparently people are getting sick as a result of salmonella that they got from handling their feeders. It's being transmitted by the birds that have salmonella. On another site I saw a recommendation if you are going to continue feeding to make sure to thoroughly sanitize your bird feeders once a week. It would also be a good idea to wear disposable gloves and a mask when performing any tasks with your feeders.
Stay safe, Patrick J.
