Two outbreaks of Salmonella infection have occurred recently.
The first took place in Downpatrick Northern Ireland where over 100 cases of diarrhoea and vomiting were traced to a S. typhimurium infection. The source of this infection was reported to be a small hot food establishment.
In the second, again caused by S. typhimurium, over forty cases were recorded in Derwentside and surrounding areas. The investigations revealed a link to a food outlet selling cooked poultry, pies, quiche and sandwiches.
