Warm weather cause highest salmonella levels in 5 years in Scotland


May 03, 2007

Warm weather causing the HIHGEST SALMONELLA LEVELS IN 5 YEARS in Scotland. Warmer weather could be the reason why Scotland is experiencing a 70% increase in Salmonella cases – the highest figures since 2001. The UNUSUAL warm weather experienced over the last few weeks has meant that more people are having barbecues, which increased the risk of food not being properly cooked. "It's quite significant. It's usually the barbecue season when we see an increase, but it's a bit early in the year." When meat is cooked on a barbeque, the bacteria is mixed into the centre of the meat, and if it's undercooked it can cause disease.
