Salmonella Outbreak Traced to Unlicensed Caterer
of Article: http://www.foodpoisonjournal.com/
According to the Jamestown
Sun, health officials in Maclean County, North Dakota have linked an
outbreak of Salmonella illnesses to an unlicensed
caterer. Aggie Jennings, who ran the catering company, has been
ordered by health department officials to cease
operations. Patrons of three separate events catered by
Jennings became ill last month. According to the article:
Kirby Kruger says shredded beef and pasta salad served by Jennings at a
June 20 wedding have tested positive for salmonella. Taco meat from a June
13 wedding also tested positive for the salmonella strain.
Tests on the farm
found a strain of salmonella found in baby chickens.
Jennings has chicks on her farm.
My guess is
that a licensed operation, inspected by trained health officials
would have been less likely to have a problem.
