Rapid outbreak assessment: multi-country outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis phage type 8, MLVA profile 2-9-7-3-2 and 2-9-6-3-2 infections, 7 March 2017
A multi-country outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis phage type 8 with MLVA profiles 2-9-7-3-2 and 2-9-6-3-2, linked to eggs, is ongoing in the EU/EEA. Based on whole genome sequencing, isolates are part of two distinct but related genetic clusters. ECDC and EFSA are liaising with relevant authorities in the Member States and the European Commission to facilitate the coordination of investigation and response measures.
