Abstract

Since 1985, egg-associated Salmonella enteritidis has emerged as a major cause of foodborne disease. New York State has been especially affected, with 47 documented egg-associated S enteritidis outbreaks involving 2279 cases and 10 deaths. Individual case reports of salmonella have also increased 56%, and sporadic cases of S enteritidis have been shown to be associated with egg consumption. Further educational and regulatory activities are needed to control this continuing public health problem.
