950 sick, 3 dead, Netherlands: Safety council to investigate salmonella in smoked salmon

Dutch News reports the national safety council will investigate fish processors Foppen where the outbreak occurred earlier this month, as well as the role of the government. The aim is to find out how such outbreaks should be dealt with in the future. There is no question of apportioning blame, says Nos television.

The salmonella was eventually traced to one of Foppen’s production lines in Greece.

So far 18 of the people who contracted salmonella have joined forces to fight for compensation.
