Family Gathering Egg Casserole 2004

A culture-positive case of Salmonella Heidelberg was reported on September 15. The case had eaten at a family gathering in Edgerton, Minnesota, between August 27 and 29. Soon after other family members reported illness. A total of five cases were discovered. One dish was found to be a statistically significant exposure; an egg bake casserole type dish. The eggs were purchased from a local farmer's market. Since the farmer's market was held intermittently, the farmer could not be traced.
