The state department of agriculture is taking another look at Estes Hatchery in Springfield.
The CDC says it traced the source of the nationwide salmonella outbreak back to the business.
Mike Brothers with the Springfield-Greene County Health Department says the hatchery has passed all its inspections and is cooperating with the investigation.
He says people don't have to worry about salmonella as long as they wash their hands before eating the poultry.
Three people in Greene County, two children and an unrelated adult, got sick back in April.
Health officials warned the public about it, and reported the sicknesses to the state.
Brothers say the health department was especially concerned about people in Springfield who use buy chickens under the ordinance passed by the city. He says they don't always know the importance of hand washing.
