Spain – Salmonella sickens six in Spain; outbreaks decline in Andalucía

Food Safety News

Public health officials in a Spanish region have reported six confirmed Salmonella infections.

Surveys and epidemiological work by Castilla y León Public Health have shown the outbreak could have been caused by the consumption of tortillas in two establishments in Soria. A Spanish tortilla also called a Spanish omelet can contain herbs, spices, potatoes, and eggs.

The product was cooked at one of these sites and part of it was transferred, once prepared, to the second.

Two children and four adults are affected. The two young people went to the Santa Bárbara Hospital and were then transferred to Burgos University Hospital, where they were admitted to the pediatric Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
