Rapid risk assessment: Multi-country outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis PT8 infection, MLVA type 2-10-8-5-2, associated with handling of feeder mice
A persistent common-source, multi-country outbreak of Salmonella Enteritidis phage type 8 infection, characterised by MLVA type 2-10-8-5-2, has been ongoing in the United Kingdom and Denmark for several years. Cases are associated with exposure to pet reptiles, in particular corn snakes, and feeder mice. The British outbreak investigation team identified the feeder mice as being imported into the United Kingdom from a rodent farm in Lithuania. Additional EU/EEA countries where the implicated feeder mice were also distributed are likely to be affected by this outbreak.
