An investigation of an outbreak caused by a rare Salmonella type, carried out by a EUPHEM fellow. I was involved to help in planning and implementation of an epidemiological study. Unfortunately, the case control study did not go well. However, the overall investigation was very successful, since it found a genetically identical Salmonella bacteria in both suspected food and in human cases.
