Cases of Salmonella From Eggs Still on the Rise

Salmonella outbreaks accounted for 142 of the bacterial outbreaks in 2007, including two of the three largest, according to a report from CDC researchers in the Aug. 13 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. The outbreaks included 802 illnesses traced to tainted hummus, and 401 illnesses from frozen pot pies.

Rodents in food packaging and distribution facilities are the most common source of salmonella contamination.
