Sweden – No cases yet linked to most recent Salmonella finding in Sweden

Food Safety News


A second alert for Salmonella at an egg producer in Sweden does not appear to have resulted in more people getting sick, according to health officials.

The Public Health Agency of Sweden (Folkhälsomyndigheten) said new findings of Salmonella at the site of the same company were made in mid-February. This prompted another wave of recalls in February and March.

In late December 2022, Salmonella Enteritidis was identified at CA Cedergren, a major producer, in one of the egg-laying stables during a routine environmental sampling check. Eggs were then recalled by Coop, Axfood, ICA, Lidl, and Kronägg. 

Investigations found Salmonella from the production environment in December was identical to isolates from sick people.
