The AMI Foundation has posted a new white paper by Ellin Doyle from the University of Wisconsin on human illness caused by Salmonella. The white paper summarizes all epidemiological data on the relationships between food and non-food vehicles and vectors, and human illnesses caused by Salmonella published in the past 5 years; compares data published since 2008 with that presented in the 2009 white paper for AMIF on vehicles associated with human illness caused by Salmonella; describes surveillance strategies, regulations, and industry initiatives to control this pathogen; and identifies gaps in understanding of food attribution data and surveillance strategies for illness caused by Salmonella. It was funded in part by the Beef Checkoff, the Pork Checkoff and the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association. The full white paper is available here.
