An outbreak of salmonella in songbirds has made its way from the West Coast to Utah, and officials are asking locals to remove or clean any bird feeders immediately.

“We’re getting birds from Salt Lake all the way up to Cache Valley,” said DaLyn Marthaler, the founder and executive director of the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah in Ogden. “It’s so widespread.”
