    This issue of the Salmonella Surveillance Report includes a discussion of the June 1966 interstate epidemic caused by smoked whitefish contaminated with Salmonella iava and a report of contamination of carmine dye with Salmonella cubana. A discussion of the use of ampicillin in the treatment of salmonella carriers and a follow-up report from the Food and Drug Administration concerning salmonellae in drug substances of animal origin are included in Special Reports.

The cumulative total of reported isolations for the first 8 months in 1966 (12,915) represents a 1.2 percent decrease from the total reported for the same period in 1965 (13,067).
