Human and animal salmonellosis in Scotland associated with environmental contamination, 1973-79

Human and animal salmonellosis in Scotland associated with environmental contamination, 1973-79

Veterinary Record 108(26): 553-555

Twenty-six incidents of salmonellosis occurring in Scotland between 1973 and 1979 and attributed to environmental pollution are reviewed. The apparent sources of pollution were sewage effluent (10 incidents), septic tank effluent (eight), sewage sludge (three), seagulls (three) and abattoir effluents (two). Cattle were the species predominantly affected. Human infection was primary in three incidents and was secondary to bovine infection in another four.
