[New Zealand Poisoning Syndrome (NZPS), Health Bulletin # 8. Outbreak of Salmonella Mbandaka, April 4, 2008]

Salmonella Outbreak

An outbreak of a rare strain of salmonella is spreading throughout New Zealand.

The salmonella mbandaka outbreak has claimed 28 reported cases, 10 in the Nelson Marlborough district. A woman infected with salmonella mbandaka recently died in Nelson; however, the date of her death has not been reveled. The New Zealand Government has also failed to disclose the timeline of the outbreak.

According to the director of public health, the cause of outbreak is unknown. The salmonella bacteria usually live in the gut of domestic and wild animals, including poultry, pigs, cattle and pets.

Symptoms included diarrhea, stomach cramps, fever, nausea, vomiting and headache.

Risk factors in New Zealand include contact with farm animals and pets, food prepared in unsanitary conditions (the highest risk), drinking contaminated water and overseas travel during the incubation period. Contact with recreational water and infected persons, though less commonly reported, pose a risk. Report
