In a follow-up on the Salmonella Enteritidis outbreak linked to eggs in Sweden, the Swedish Public Health Agency now reports 48 people from 13 different regions have been confirmed infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Enteritidis.


The outbreak has now also been able to be linked to the recalled eggs as earlier salmonella findings from the production environment after analysis of the bacteria’s genetic material have been shown to be identical to isolates from the outbreak cases.

Typing of salmonella isolates from already reported cases that state that they ate food containing raw eggs from recalled lots is still pending, so the total number of victims is expected to increase.
