U. S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE

For release July 20, 1962 ATLANTA 22, GEORGIA
PROVISIONAL INFORMATION ON SELECTED NOTIFIABLE DISEASES IN THE UNI -E
DEATHS IN SELECTED CITIES FOR WEEK ENDED JULY 14, 1962


POLIOMYELITIS The week ending July 14, 1962,
brought reports of 24 cases, 15 paralytic, from the Nation.
Texas continued to account for the largest proportion of
these, with 9 cases, 4 paralytic. The remaining cases were
scattered in seven other States, with no notable case con-
centrations.
The report from Texas this week includes 3 paralytic
cases from Dallas Gounty, and two non-paralytic cases
from adjacent Tarrant County (Fort Worth). The total num-
ber of reported paralytic cases in Dallas County has now
reached 9. All 9 cases have had onset since June 6. Harris
County (Houston), from which 6 paralytic cases had been
previously reported, accounted for 2 nonparalytic cases
this week.


The National incidence, both in total number of re-
ported cases and in paralytic cases, closely follows the
experience in 1961 as is shown in the figure on page 218.
However, the current six week cumulative total of para-
lytic cases remains well above the total for 1961 with 73
paralytic cases in 1962 as compared to 53 in 1961. Com-
parable totals for the past 5 years are shown below.

HEPATITIS For the week ending July 14, 752 cases of
viral hepatitis were reported which brings to 32,789 the
total number of cases recorded this year. This represents
a decrease of approximately 25% from the total for this
same period last year.


The menu consisted of salad, cold roast turkey, dres-
sing, hot gravy, candied sweet potatoes, green beans, hot
rolls, ice cream cake roll, and iced tea. The food was
put on the plates in the kitchen; each person had thk full
menu set before him. Epidemiologic evidence pointed
strongly towards the turkey-dressing-gravy combination
as the contaminated items of the menu.
Bacteriologic examination of the turkey and dressing
samples yielded Salmonella infants, the same organism
isolated from the stools of 20 of the victims. One of three
known food handlers had a positive stool culture for
Salmonella infantis. She had eaten some of the turkey
during preparation and developed clinical symptoms within
24 hours.
Six turkeys averaging about 20 lbs. each were pre-
pared for cooking on Tuesday, May 29. The turkeys were
thawed, washed, and stuffed with a prepared stuffing. Five
of the six were baked, that afternoon for five hours at
3250F. After a three-hour cooling period, they were placed
in a crowded icebox. The sixth turkey, uncooked, was
placed in the freezing compartment of the icebox and was
cooked the next day. All six turkeys were placed in a
large, more adequate icebox in the cafeteria onWednesday.
The turkeys were removed from the icebox at 5:00 p.m.
on Thursday, the evening of the banquet and warmed for
serving.
The turkeys had originally been obtained from a large
poultry processing plant in a Western State. This plant
slaughters 10,000 turkeys daily from approximately 60
farms in a 150 square mile area. The turkeys were frozen
shortly after packing. Because the specific date of slaugh-
ter could not be ascertained, it was not possible to in-
criminate any single flock.

sion of Epidemiology, Maryland State Department of Health
and A. F. Whitsitt, M.D., Kent County Health Officer,
Maryland.)


EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS


Salmonella infants Food Poisoning Maryland
One hundred and sixty-four of 177 students and adults
(93%) who attended a high school commencement banquet
in a Maryland town on May 31 became acutely ill within
8 to 24 hours following, the dinner. The victims experi-
enced a sudden onset of general malaise, abdominal
cramps, and severe non-bloody diarrhea; some had nausea
and vomiting. There were a few instances of recorded
fever of 1030 or more. Although five were sick enough to
require hospital care, there were no fatalities. Most re-
covered in one to three days. Thirteen additional cases
occurred in five families to which turkey from the banquet
had been carried.


Mushroom Poisoning California
On May 18, 1962, four children, ages 4 to 6, had a
children's tea party at which they shared two mushrooms
picked from a nearby lawn. Two of the four children be-
came ill two hours later with symptoms of nausea, vomi-
ting, and stomach cramps. Pieces of mushrooms were
noted in the vomitus by the mother of one of the children.
On inquiry, she was told the story about their tea party.
The children were not clear about where the mushrooms
had been picked. The symptoms, onset time, and location
where the mushrooms were picked suggested Lepiota
morgani.

tarian, and Dr. George M. Uhl, Health Officer. Los An-
geles City Health Department.)

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


1961 Poliomyelitis Virus Isolations

The Poliomyelitis Surveillance Unit received reports
of attempted virus isolation on 735 cases of poliomyelitis
with onsets in 1961. This represents virologic study of
54 percent of the 1356 cases reported on individual case
forms.
Poliovirus was isolated from 481 or 65 percent of the
specimens submitted. As in past years, there was a
greater percentage of poliovirus isolates from those cases
with residual paralysis; isolations having been obtained
from 78 percent from whom specimens were submitted
(as compared to 77 percent in 1960 and 78 percent in
1959). In those paralytic cases with no residual paralysis,
poliovirus was isolated in 46 percent of the cases studied.
The nonparalytic-aseptic' meningitis syndrome group
showed poliovirus isolations in only 35 percent of the
specimens studied. The table presents the virus isola-
tions by final classification of cases reported.
Of the 481 poliovirus isolates, 60 percent were Type I
and 38 percent were Type III. Type II was isolated in


only 6 cases. Although poliomyelitis was again predomi-
nantly due to Type I virus, Type III isolates increased in
proportion to 38 percent in 1961, compared to 26 percent
in 1960 and 11 percent in 1959.
New York accounted for over one-third of the Type I
isolates in 1961; Maryland, South Carolina, and Georgia
accounted for 40 percent of Type III isolates throughout
the nation.
