An outbreak of Shigellosis at an outdoor music festival.
In August 1988, an estimated 3,175 women who attended a 5-day outdoor music festival in Michigan became ill with gastroenteritis caused by Shigella sonnei.
An uncooked tofu salad served on the last day was implicated as the outbreak vehicle.
Limited access to soap and running water for handwashing was one of the few sanitary deficits noted at this gathering.
