AU: Salmonella – find out more
Food Safety Information Council: There have been a number of Salmonella outbreaks, including a recent one in Melbourne. A study by the [Australian National University] ANU has found Salmonella cases have increased by 24% in Australia over the last 10 years.
Salmonella food poisoning (salmonellosis) is usually linked to consuming inadequately cooked meats or poultry, other foods contaminated by raw meats and poultry, as well as foods containing raw or undercooked eggs, unpasteurised dairy products such as raw milk or cheeses. But many other foods have been linked to outbreaks caused by Salmonella including mayonnaise (with raw eggs), fruits and vegetables, salads, milk, unpasteurised fruit juices, nuts, seeds and sprouted seeds.
