A Salmonella outbreak that mainly sickened children in China was caused by contaminated kitchen-made mayonnaise used in egg sandwiches, according to a study.

In September 2019, the Shenzhen and Dongguan Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were notified of a large cluster of suspected gastroenteritis involving primarily children who sought medical care at hospitals in the two cities.

A total of 254 cases were reported in Shenzhen and Dongguan, Guangdong province, found the study published in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology.
