      For the Month of August 1966.

      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.

      In August there were 2,408 isolations of salmonellae reported from humans, an average of 482 isolations per week. This number represented an increase of 74 (18.1 percent) over the weekly average during July 1966 and an increase of 10 (2.1 percent) over the weekly average of August 1965. 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).

      There were 863 nonhuman isolations of salmonellae in August, an increase of 352 from July.
