Of the 68 paralytic cases reported from Texas this
year, over 80 percent of those with known vaccination
status have been unvaccinated. There have now been 23
isolations of Type I poliovirus from the 1962 Texas
cases; this includes 7 from Bexar County, 6 from Webb
County, and 2 from Frio County.
The 2 paralytic cases reported by Massachusetts
were both unvaccinated pre-school children from the cities
of New Bedford and Lynn with onsets on June 13 and 19
respectively. Neither child had received oral vaccine
during a recent program; siblings of one of the children
received oral vaccine in school. Type I poliovirus has
been isolated from both children. A door-to-door immuni-
zation program with Type I oral vaccine has been carried
out in the neighborhoods of both children.


HEPATITIS The decline in the weekly number of hepa-
titis cases continues with 786 cases of hepatitis reported
for the week ending June 23, 1962. This represents 447
cases fewer than reported for the corresponding week in
1961. A total of 30,841 cases has been reported for the
first 25 weeks of 1962.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


sisted of a chef's salad of cold turkey, cold ham, salad
dressing, and lettuce, french fried potatoes, broccoli,
rolls, ice cream, and beverages. The turkey meat was
from a lot purchased frozen and stored in a large freezer
in the main kitchen. Approximately one month prior to
the outbreak, some of these turkeys were taken out of the
freezer, allowed to defrost, were cooked and served at
the cafeteria. About 25 lbs. were left over; this, left-over
turkey was put in a large, walk-in refrigerator. After two
days, the meat was re-frozen in another large refrigerator,
not a quick-freeze.
Cultures of the chef's salad revealed a bacteria
count of ten million Stapb. aureus per gram. It is reported
that the "policies in the dining room at the school have
been changed they don't re-freeze anything now."
(Reported by Dr. Dean Fisher, Commissioner of Health
and Welfare, State of Maine.)


NOTICE

Due to observance of Independence Day on July 4, the
report for the week ending June 30, (Vol. 11, No. 26) will
be mailed on Friday, July 6, rather than Thursday, July 5.
