this is kpix5 news. e discovered tonight.. >> hundreds of people get sick after eating chicken produced here in california, what we discovered tonight that makes you wonder how safe is the food we buy? good evening. i'm elizabeth cook. >> i'm ken bastida. it's a salmonella outbreak involving one of the most popular brands of chicken out there. we talked to a bay area man who was just about to dig in. >> the number is right there. >> reporter: ed vanick says he bought foster farms raw chicken today and was about to prepare dinner when he saw our report on kpix5 at 5:00. turns out he bought the very same chicken, had the same serial numbers as the ones making people 6p 6137, p6137a
and p7632. >> why can they put stuff out that has salmonella in it? if they could check it closer, it wouldn't happen. >> reporter: today the us department of agriculture issued a public health alert saying 278 people got sick with strains of salmonella heidelberg in 18 states, predominantly california and that the illnesses are associated with raw chicken products produced by foster farms at three facilities in california. that chicken is still being sold now. we found it on the shelves at a local grocery store tonight. that's because no recall has been issued. >> i don't know why they're not recalling it. >> reporter: uc berkeley professor dr. lee riley specializes in infectious diseases and says yes, cook the chicken long enough to kill bacteria, but it's still the company's responsibility to make sure meat contaminated with salmonella doesn't get out to the public. could be it a problem at the plant?
>> from what we know that the same thing happened back in the spring, same year, this year, maybe there's something going on at the plant. i don't know. >> reporter: foster farms put out a statement saying it regrets people got sick and that they're taking new safety precautions and they're emphasizing you should thoroughly cook your chicken balls it's still on the shelf in the grocery store. -- because it's still on the shelf in the grocery store. >> that's really the question. why no recall? why doesn't the company step in and remove it? >> that's what's key is because the protocol for the government in apparently cases with chicken and salmonella is to leave it up to the company and so far foster farms said people should know how to cook the chicken. cook it all the way through and they have no plan at this point to issue that recall. >> thank you, joe. it took san jose firefighters about 30 minutes to put out a fire caused by illegal wiring used to grow pot. san jose police tell us the man in a home at seventh and st.
james was growing a legal amount of pot, but he was using electricity illegally. across town a scene out of breaking bad. the only thing missing was the suspect. deputies tell kiet do this guy started young. >> reporter: as one deputy said, this is big. >> this is impressive. i've never seen anything like this before. >> reporter: what is this? >> this is crystal meth in a very pure form. >> reporter: after a two year long investigation undercover deputies with the santa clara county sheriff's office seized a stash that would make breaking bad take notice, 27 pounds of uncut meth more than 90% pure. >> i feel walter white would be pretty impressed if he would see this. >> reporter: there was so much money deputies had to use the dealer's own cash counter to cut down on police overtime. total amount? $825,000, but the grand total for all of it with the cash and 4 pounds of cocaine was $2.3
million. >> i think there's more than this in the county. what makes me real happy is we have this here and that our investigators did such a good job to take this amount of drugs off the streets. >> reporter: the 1 pound packages of meth were triple wrapped in tupperware containers, foil and ziploc bags, telltale signs it likely came from mexican drug cartels. everything was laying in plain view in the home of this man, 22-year-old jose alonso jimenez- olmos, a fairly high level distributor now on the run from the good guys and the bad guys. >> i'm sure he had someone he buys from if he's not in charge of processing. it's a big hit to somebody. it will be interesting. that's why we'd like to get him in custody. >> reporter: detectives say he better hope the cops find him before the cartel gets to him first. kiet do, kpix5. >> deputies also recovered two loaded guns. one was reported stolen by its owner. we learned late today there probably won't be a b.a.r.t.
strike friday. the day after the cooling off period ends, but tonight juliette goodrich has exclusive details about a potential hiccup in these negotiations. >> reporter: that hiccup is a third union we really don't hear from, but tonight i talked with union president and she told me they could be the holdout. the other two unions have a gag order tonight. r equal work . for bart managem >> we will be reading a statement. we will not be taking any questions. we do not want to strike. we want that to be made perfectly clear. >> reporter: two of b.a.r.t.'s biggest unions under a gag order tonight, but a third union comprised of middle management and train controllers -- >> the contention at the table is tenfold. >> reporter: talked exclusive to kpix5 tonight. they aren't under a gag order but somehow have been out of the spotlight. >> this is horrible. i have never been in a situation like this. >> reporter: and the president of afscme local 3393, the
smallest union, says they could be the holdout. >> if we don't come to an agreement, which we hope we do, we could actually go on strike and the other two unions would honor our lines. >> reporter: at issue, safety and equal pay for equal work. as for b.a.r.t. management? >> we're going to continue to talk and we'll talk beyond the end of the cooling off period, if necessary. >> reporter: a lot of riders are saying we're so tired of this. why can't they come to an agreement and some of them feel that the workers are getting fair pay now, it's been negotiated. >> well, i don't blame them. what they hear on the news i would want to believe, too but it's simply not true and we're not on the news flinging mud. .. th sides will be b >> reporter: in july when there was a strike, there was a 72 hour courtesy notice, but it's not required. this time around they're not offering that three-day notice which leads a glimmer of hope that maybe b.a.r.t. workers won't walk off the job friday. in oakland juliette goodrich, kpix5. >> those negotiations have wrapped up for the night, but
both sides will be back at the table tomorrow at 10 a.m. sharp. in washington tonight nothing is happening, nothing productive at least. we are now in the second week of a government shutdown. republican house speaker john boehner won't allow a vote on the spending bill until the white house negotiates first. boehner claims there's not enough votes to pass it and today president obama told boehner prove it. house official said that the president would rather defat than to sit down and c-b-s >> my very strong suspicion is that there are enough votes there and the reason that speaker boehner hasn't called the vote on it is because he doesn't apparently want to see the government shutdown end at the moment. >> this morning the senior white house official said the president would rather default than to sit down and negotiate. d 15 republicans.. would vote tod th gs really? >> cbs news confirmed 200 house democrats and 15 republicans would vote to fund the government with no strings attached. that's just shy of the 217 votes needed to pass the bill. tonight natural gas is no
longer flowing through a high pressure pipeline on the peninsula. line 147 runs right through a neighborhood in san carlos. the problem is an 83-year-old seam weld. that type of weld has been a problem in the past. pg&e says it did not know the weld existed on that pipeline until crews discovered it last november while fixing some corrosion. so a judge ordered the utility to shut that entire line down and that's what pg&e did. >> it was thursday that we were handed this e-mail from pg&e officials which contained a statement suggesting by one of their engineers suggesting that san carlos may be the next san bruno. >> those same welds were in the pipeline in san bruno that blew up in september of 2010. pg&e told us today the pipeline in san carlos is safe, but it will keep testing that line. people's gas service in the area has not been affected. pleaded and
