  • 2. Salmonella Outbreak
    • Eating raw shell eggs is well known to be a risk factor for salmonella food poisoning. In restaurants, pasteurised eggs should be used in food which is intended to be served raw or lightly cooked.
    • However this slide shows the ‘recipe’ for when this guidance was not followed and this resulted in 99 known diners at a restaurant to have probable salmonella food poisoning.
    • A sample of the kiwi parfait made with raw eggs was available and was found to have 38,000 colony forming units of salmonella per gram.
    • This slide illustrates that even in the situations that risk factors are well described and there is guidance; ill health can still occur. Guidance needs to be implemented in order to get the gains in population health that we expect and need.
