New York Riker's Island Correctional Institution for Women Unknown 1987

An outbreak of Salmonellosis at Riker's Island Correctional Institution for Women occurred over a two month time period. Two Salmonella strains (serogroups B and D) were involved. No particular food was ever implicated. The investigation was hampered by lack of cooperation among inmates and lack of jurisdiction to collect food or environmental samples. Some of the inmates were confirmed to be infected with Salmonella.
