Salmonella Enteritidis

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), Salmonella serotype Enteritidis (SE) is one of the most common serotypes of salmonella bacteria reported worldwide. During the 1980s, SE became a major source of human illness in the United States. The number of outbreaks grew exponentially, originating in the northeastern part of the country and then spreading west over the next decade. Salmonella Enteritidis now occurs in most regions around the country. A person infected with SE usually experiences fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. The illness usually lasts up to a week, and most otherwise healthy individuals recover without antibiotic treatment. However, the diarrhea can be severe, and the affected individual may be sick enough to require hospitalization.

Not surprisingly, eggs have been found to be the most common food source linked to Salmonella Enteritidis infections. SE can be present in perfectly normal-looking eggs. If eggs contaminated with SE are eaten raw or are lightly cooked, the bacteria can cause illness. Over the past decade, poultry, milk, pork, beef, and sprouts have also been found to be a common source of SE infections.
