25 Cases of Salmonella Confirmed in NL Likely Due to Contaminated Eggs

The Public Health Agency of Canada says 25 cases of salmonella have been confirmed in Newfoundland and Labrador following an outbreak linked to contaminated eggs.

Several recalls were issued last year for batches of eggs distributed in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Health officials say the recalled products are past their shelf-life and are no longer available at stores. However, the outbreak appears to be ongoing due to recently-reported illness.

Between both provinces, 57 cases were confirmed. The individuals fell ill between October and late last month. Nineteen people were hospitalized.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is continuing its investigation, and says further recalls will be issued if necessary.
