The epidemiology of travel-related Salmonella Enteritidis in Ontario, Canada, 2010-2011

BMC Public Health, 05/11/2012

There is a large burden of travel–related (TR) illness from Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) in Ontario. Accurate classification of cases by travel history is important to better understand the source of infections. The findings emphasize the need to make travellers, especially to the Caribbean, and health professionals who provide advice to travellers, aware of this risk. The findings may be generalized to other jurisdictions with travel behaviours in their residents similar to Ontario residents.
