Marler Blog Providing Commentary on Food Poisoning Outbreaks & Litigation

Salmonella Oranienburg probe at a standstill–asking for help.

According to the Daily Dispatch:

To date, the state health department is reporting 48 confirmed cases of Salmonella Oranienburg in the Sierra Vista (Arizona) area since Sept. 1. In addition, health officials have confirmed three new cases of salmonella, but the exact type has not been determined. If any of those three are Oranienburg, they will be added to the existing count.

I found several other Salmonella Oranienburg outbreaks cited over the last several years:

Interestingly, there is another Salmonella outbreak – this one in Kane County Illinois as reported by Tim Wagner:  Kane outbreak of salmonella still puzzling health experts

In Kane County Illinois alone, 15 laboratory-confirmed salmonella cases with the same strain of bacteria were reported to the health department last year, compared to four on average. Health department officials are working to create awareness of this specific form of salmonella. They also are attempting to identify the cause, but it has proven ultra-difficult, given that the cases have been widespread — eight were reported in Aurora and seven more in the Elgin/Carpentersville area. Of the 15 cases, six were reported to the health department in December.
