Ontario Canada Luncheon Meats 2005

An outbreak of Salmonella PT U302 occurred in southern Ontario, Canada. A common food source with a long self life was suspected. The most likely hypothesis supported by the findings was that the illnesses were caused by contaminated salami, mortadella, or proscuitto made by a single producer. The producer was not named. No Salmonella contamination was actually detected from these products.
