Ham inquiry over salmonella outbreak

Ham inquiry over salmonella outbreak | Animal Sciences | Scoop.it
The source of an outbreak of salmonella in north Wales is potentially linked to cooked ham - as 36 more cases are reported in England.

Via Josh Nelson
Brendan Forester's insight:

In England a Salmonella outbreak has occurred. 57 cases have been reported. Butchers that sell cooked ham have spread it. The butchers have not been found yet but this is so unusual that it probably couldn’t have been a coincidence. The good thing about this is that it is very curable.

57 cases salmonella have been reported, 36 of which are in England. The outbreak has thought to have been linked to ham. Researches don't know for sure that ham is the culpret, but most of the patients have reported that they remember eating ham. Many butchers have been tested, but no salmonella has been found. I think it's scary to think that this could become a huge outbreak like the last time. My family eats ham mostly durng the Holidays, so by then I hope that it's not spread here or even still existing at all.

36 new cases of salmonella have been reported, from infants to 80 year old prisoners. but no one is sure if it is truely salmonella. The people who seem to have it also have bad hygiene, so they are keeping an eye on it to see what is really happening.

Zack Dafoe's curator insight, December 6, 2013 9:43 AM

The number of confirmed cases had risen to 57 - 36 of them in England.

They range from a seven-month-old baby to a pensioner of 87. Nine people have been treated in hospital.

Experts from Public Health Wales (PHW) have been working with Public Health England, the Food Standards Agency and environmental health officers to find possible links between the cases and trace the source of the outbreak, after it was initially reported last month.

The suppliers have still not been traced but the link to cooked ham is common in the cases so far.

Cases have also been reported in places as far apart as the north east of England and Norfolk.

Farmers have all kinds of stress these days.  Most of the farmers stress is about political pressures related to antiobtic use in food.  " Meat without drugs " or " Antibiotic Free " meat may lead to very negitative troubles to the animal well- being!

Brendan Forester's insight:

3,000 chickens were saved by an anonymous benefactor. Theyy paid $50,000 to have them flown to the east coast. The animal welfare group that saved them, saved them from being killed in gas chambers.
