Salmonella Enteritidis PT6: Another egg-associated Salmonellosis?

Evans, Meirion Rhys 1998. Salmonella Enteritidis PT6: Another egg-associated Salmonellosis? Emerging Infectious Diseases 4 (4) , pp. 667-669. 10.3201/eid0404.980421

Salmonella Enteritidis phage type 6 (PT6) increased dramatically in the United Kingdom during 1997. The sharp rise suggests that PT6 contamination has spread rapidly throughout a basic food commodity; however, the source and food vehicle remain unknown. We present evidence from three outbreaks suggesting a possible link between PT6 and eggs. Poor documentation of the egg supply network continues to pose problems for public health investigators. Thorough investigation of all future PT6 outbreaks and case-control studies of sporadic infections are needed to confirm the etiology of PT6 infection.
