    • Description:
      For the Month of August, 1965 A total of 1887 isolations of salmonella from humans was reported during August. This represented an average of 472 isolations per week for an increase of 22 over July, 1965 and 28 over August, 1964. Figure 1 demonstrates that the increasing seasonal incidence seen for this time of year is not unexpected from data recorded for 1963 and 1964. There were 659 nonhuman isolations of salmonella reported during August for a decrease of 110 from July, a month which included late reports from the National Animal Disease Laboratory, Ames, Iowa. This month's figure represented an increase of 148 isolations over August, 1964. This issue includes the final analysis of an outbreak of Salmonella meleagridis gastroenteritis related to a Washington, D. C. delicatessen. This article along with a special editorial report on the role of meat-slicers in salmonella infections emphasizes the importance of environmental contamination in the preparation of food. Two outbreaks of salmonellosis in Switzerland are described in the International Section.
