Salmonella in salmon

A large outbreak of food poisoning due to Salmonella Thompson bacteria started in the Netherlands in July 2012. Salmonella bacteria can give rise to intestinal infections that often have a mild course, associated with fever, nausea and diarrhoea.

The outbreak was traced to smoked salmon produced by a Dutch manufacturer. Smoked salmon from this producer was recalled . The outbreak came to an end in December. By that time, laboratory tests showed that a total of 1149 people had become ill due to the contaminated salmon.
