UK: Food Standards Agency leads investigation into new Salmonella outbreak
The Food Standards Agency Scotland is leading an urgent investigation into a new outbreak of Salmonella enteritidis, which has so far affected 85 people. Two strains have been identified: phage type 5c and phage type 6a. The highest concentration of cases are concentrated in Lanarkshire. However, cases have also been identified in the following health board areas: Greater Glasgow, Arran and Ayrshire, Dumfries and Galloway, Highland, Fife, Lothian, Borders, and Forth Valley. The Food Standards Agency Scotland has therefore declared a national outbreak and convened an Outbreak Control Team.
