In recent decades Salmonella has become a scourge of pandemic proportions, most commonly in the form of Salmonella Enteritidis, the serotype discussed in this book. This timely account of Salmonella Enteritidis as a public threat and a medical problem represents the various efforts of health professionals around the world to understand and control this widespread disease. Adopting a perspective that ranges from the global to the molecular, the authors describe first-hand the epidemiology, prevention, and control of Salmonella Enteritidis in countries including Great Britain, France, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Italy, Austria, and the United States, with a tightly focused account of an outbreak in New York City from 1993 to 1995. Unique in its detailed overview of this prevalent disease, this book will be of great value to public health planners and medical and animal health agencies, as well as producers whose food products are susceptible to Salmonella and its devastating consequences on food safety.
