New Zealand has been Salmonella enteritidis-free since September

New Zealand has reported that the efforts to mitigate Salmonella enteritidis are working because the last outbreak detected in a flock was in September of this year.

The Salmonella enteritidis strain was first detected in a hatchery located in Auckland in March last year. After that, 14 places tested positive for that strain leading to the culling of around 550 birds and a total of 130 people infected with this bacteria.

Recently, the New Zealand Food Safety deputy director general Vincent Arbuckle said control efforts were paying off. Additionally, Salmonella enteritidis has not been found on farms since early September, and the last case in humans was reported in May 2022.

Other quotes from the report were:

Remember that Salmonella enteritidis can cause abdominal cramps, diarrhea, fever, headache, and vomiting in people. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC), the symptoms in people that get ill from Salmonella usually begin 6 hours to 6 days after infection and last 4 to 7 days. However, most people recover without specific treatment and should not take antibiotics. Antibiotics are typically used only to treat people who have severe illnesses or who are at risk for it.
