Two Salmonella outbreaks were linked to dried sausages produced around the same time by one company in France, according to a study.
The outbreaks affected 44 people who consumed dried pork sausages contaminated by two different types of Salmonella.
Salmonella Bovismorbificans infected a total of 33 people from September to November 2020 and 11 patients with monophasic Salmonella Typhimurium from October to December 2020.
Epidemiological investigations by Santé publique France linked the outbreaks to dried pork sausages from the manufacturer France Salaison produced between September and November 2020. Three recalls of dried pork products were issued in November, affecting eight supermarkets.
