Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Here is an update on the nationwide salmonella outbreak that has been linked to chicken.

The poultry company at the center of the health scare has submitted a plan to the USDA on how to fix the problem.

Foster Farms, which is based in California, is being blamed for a salmonella outbreak that has sickened nearly 300 people in 18 states, including 8 people in Nevada.

Local health officials say they are expecting new cases to surface in the state within the next few days.

The chicken was distributed to retail outlets mainly in California, Oregon and Washington but illnesses have been reported in several states.

The Foster Farms chicken packages in question have the following codes on them:

P-6137
P-6137-1
P-7632
