Three people have died and the number of those sickened by Salmonella Thompson after eating Foppen smoked salmon has risen to 950, Dutch health officials said on Thursday.

“Three elderly people have died as a result of being infected by Salmonella Thompson. In total, some 950 people have now been taken ill as a result of the salmon, which have been taken off the shelves,” said the National Institute for Public Health (RIVM) in the Netherlands.

The RIVM added that around 100 people in the United States were also infected “by the same type of Salmonella.”  The CDC has yet to confirm a link in the United States between Salmonella Thompson illnesses here and smoked salmon.
