Public Health Ontario (PHO) Grand Rounds - Nuggets of Wisdom: Salmonella Enteritidis Outbreaks and the Case for New Rules on Uncooked Frozen Processed Chicken

Topics: Food Location: General, Canada

This presentation will describe three Canadian Salmonella serotype Enteritidis outbreak investigations in 2014 and 2015 that implicated uncooked, frozen, processed chicken products produced at the same establishment. Outbreaks have been linked to uncooked, frozen, processed chicken products since the late 1990s. These three outbreaks, along with more recent incidents, highlight the potential ongoing risks to consumers from these products and support interventions to prevent contamination at the source level and infection at the consumer level.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the epidemiology of S. Enteritidis
  • Describe the mechanism by which uncooked, frozen, processed chicken products result in S. Enteritidis outbreaks
  • Better understand the use of whole genome sequencing in enteric outbreak investigations
  • Apply the learnings to future public health cases and outbreak investigations
