Salmonella Outbreak, We Hardly Knew You

Well just when I was gearing up to blog continuously about yesterday’s salmonella outbreak, it appears to be over. Healthday News reports that even though officials are still trying to pinpoint the source, it is no longer a major public health concern. Amanda Gardner has more:
Reports of the illness peaked in late September, according to David Acheson, chief medical officer of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. That suggests the outbreak is over, and there is no continuing public health risk, he added.

"Whatever was contaminated that caused the illness, it has either been consumed, destroyed or thrown out. So the suggestion there is a need to put out a consumer warning about produce on the shelf is unwarranted. It seems to be past," Acheson told the Associated Press.
Oh salmonella, ya’ could’a been-a contenda’.
