Duck eggs and Salmonella

After the incident in the US with regard to Salmonella and hen's eggs (half a billion eggs), the UK FSA has issued guidance on the handling and preparation of of duck eggs.The update follows an investigation by the Health Protection Agency (HPA) into an outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium DT8.

"The investigation indicates that from 1 January 2010 to date, 63 cases of Salmonella Typhimurium DT8 infection have been reported in the UK. Two cases are known to have resulted in people being hospitalised and one death has been reported (although at present it is uncertain whether the death is directly related to the Salmonella infection). Evidence from investigations carried out by the HPA and FSA supports a link between the consumption of duck eggs and this outbreak".
