Salmonella cases increase in Victory
Reported cases of salmonella infection in Victoria have risen 21% in the
past five months, according to the Department of Human Services (DHS).
There have been over 800 reported cases of salmonella
in the state so far this year, a 21% increase

"Investigations into some cases of salmonella have indicated the illness
may have been associated with raw eggs in food," Dr Lester said.
