Pasteurisation and the control of milkborne infection in Britain

British Medical Journal 291(6493): 463-464

Pasteurisation and the control of milkborne infection in Britain

Legislation introduced in Scotland in Aug. 1983 requires heat treatment of cows' milk for sale to the public. The effects of this legislation are examined by comparing the incidence of milkborne infections (particularly salmonellosis and campylobacter enteritis) with that in England and Wales during 1983/84.
