According to a new Frontline Special "The Trouble With Chicken," the U.S. poultry industry is pumping out birds with more and stronger strains of bacteria like Salmonella.

Chicken is the most popular protein in the United States and the drive to sustain a hungry market while keeping costs low means small animal enclosures and the use of antibiotics. More antibiotics are sold for animal use than human use in this country. 

After the last vote was tallied and certified, San Antonio's municipal elections passed with small changes, and potentially smaller changes to come. 

With 11.89 percent of registered voters turning out, nine of the 10 City Council members won resounding victories over their challengers, leaving one council race and the top job of Mayor of San Antonio still undecided. Both undecided races include their seat's incumbent with Ivy Taylor facing off with Leticia Van de Putte for Mayor, and District 7's Cris Medina in a race with Mari Aguirre-Rodriguez.
