“Normally we only see a handful of cases of this strain each year, but so far this year there have been 28 adult cases of Salmonella anatum – mostly adults - notified to the Department," The Department of Health and Human Services Senior Medical Advisor Dr Finn Romanes said.

“As a result of following up the food histories of a number of people we have discovered a common source - the Tripod Farmers lettuce,” 

“Tests of three products from two batches have also tested positive for Salmonella anatumbacterium,” Dr Romanes said.

Symptoms of salmonellosis usually occur between six to 72 hours after the bacteria is ingested. The most common symptoms include: diarrhoea, which may contain blood or mucous; fever; headache; stomach cramps; nausea; vomiting, and dehydration, especially among infants and the elderly.
