This type of outbreak should not occur. It is vital that all people preparing, handling and selling food for consumption know the importance of food hygiene and proper food preparation.

The number of confirmed salmonella cases linked to a northern suburbs Vietnamese bakery chain in Adelaide has risen to 15, with 11 people hospitalised.

The people had eaten Vietnamese pork rolls, Banh Mi Thit, from purchased from the chain of bakeries.

Environmental and food samples were taken from all the stores.

Cleaning and sanitising procedures were also evaluated and will continue to be observed.

Early investigations indicate the cases could be linked to raw egg butter, pate or BBQ pork ingredients.  Tests results should be known early next week.

Symptoms of salmonella usually last for three to seven days and can include fever, vomiting, headaches, stomach cramps, loss of appetite and diarrhoea.

With so many regulations and industry requirements salmonella outbreaks should not happen.  It is vital that all people preparing, handling and selling food for consumption know the importance of food hygiene and food preparation and remain fully trained.
