A bizarre salmonella outbreak at Olympic test events in Athens hit 62 members of German rowing team, while a rash of salmonella outbreaks have been reported across the UK. An expert says the source of these outbreaks is probably food-based. Well, yeah. "Salmonella is the second most common cause of food poisoning after campylobacter. It has been found in unpasteurised milk, eggs and raw egg products, meat and poultry. Although thorough cooking will kill the bacteria, cross-contamination of ready-to-eat foods can occur through contaminated utensils and hands." More news as it comes in.
