  • Description:
    Salmonella has been known to be associated with food poisoning since shortly after Salmon and Smith (1885) first described a member of the group. Early workers attempted to classify the Salmonella into the following three groups (5) according to pathogenicity and host specificity : (1) those organisms that are of human origin and are pathogenic for man only; (2) those of animal origin and nonpathogenic for man; (3) those of animal origin, and primarily infecting animals but also causing a mild gastro-enteritis in man. In recent years, the use of newer selective media for the isolation of Salmonella and more adequate antigenic analysis of these organisms have disclosed the infection of humans with the “purely animal” strains, and the infection of animals with “purely human” strains. Of the more than 150 antigenic types of Salmonella now recognized, few, if any, are limited to one host (2). All types must be considered as potential pathogens for man and/or animals.
