The Finnish Food Safety Authority (Evira) said in a statement Monday it had found a strain of the Salmonella Tennessee bacterium at nine poultry farms, adding there was a high likelihood that all the outbreaks had been caused by a single contaminated batch of feed made by Raisio.

"This is a serious matter for the farms," said Kaija Varimo of Evira.

"How will they survive given that animals will have to be culled?"

Evira plans to check hundreds of pig and poultry farms for salmonella, an operation that is expected to take weeks to complete.
