Ham inquiry over salmonella outbreak

Ham inquiry over salmonella outbreak | ALS Animals | 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.

Leah Mauch's insight:

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.

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.

Caitlin Quilter's curator insight, September 19, 2013 11:30 AM

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. 

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.
