Traduction en anglais : The salmonellosis epidemic in Lübeck in 1990 : an epidemiological study as a contribution to clarifying the causes of salmonellosis.
In 1990 in Germany for the first time more than 100 000 cases of enteric infections (mostly salmonella enteritidis) were registered.
The incidence is still increasing.
As only one of ten cases is reported the yearly overall loss to general economy is estimated up to DM 600 000 000.
Many hypotheses on causes were suggested but none could be verified (e.g. mass-breeding of animals, modernistic habits of eating and drinking, introduction of microwave-cooking, deterioration of hygiene in kitchens, insufficient cooling of food).
This paper reports on the result of retrospective interviews with regard to food-and kitchen-hygiene of persons suffering from salmonellosis during an epidemy in Lübeck in autumn 1990.
