Provisional Information on Selected Notifiable Diseases in the United States and on

Deaths in Selected Cities for Week Ended October 14, 1961


Poliomyelitis There has been a sharp drop in the
number of poliomyelitis cases reported for the current
week ending October 14. A total of 35 cases, 20 para-
lytic, was reported. This compares to the 68 cases, in-
cluding 45 paralytic, which were reported during the
previous week.
The comparative low incidence during 1961 is demon-
strated in the tabulation. The number of paralytic cases
through the 41st week in 1961 is 37% of the number re-
ported last year.

six isolations of Type III poliovirus. A mass vaccination
campaign using Type III oral poliovaccine was begun on
Thursday, October 19.
Two of the four paralytic cases reported from New
York are related to the Syracuse outbreak but do not have
recent onsets. There have been 76 paralytic cases in the
tri-county area comprising Onondaga, Madison, and
Oneida Counties. The most recent case experienced an
onset of disease on September 24.
In Pennsylvania, two of the three paralytic cases
reported are from Erie County. There are now four para-
lytic cases that have occurred in Erie County and a mass
immunization program with inactivated vaccine is under-
way. The current cases were both unvaccinated school
age children with onsets on September 22 and October 1.
Only one nonparalytic case has been reported from
the cluster of cases in Windsor County, Vermont and
adjoining Sullivan County, New Hampshire. Nine cases
have been reported from these counties of which only
four are paralytic. Type I poliovirus has been isolated
from three cases.


Diphtheria Seventeen cases of diphtheria from
seven different States were reported this week. No sig-
nificant concentrations of cases are yet evident. The six
cases from Georgia are from four separate counties.

Hepatitis The number of hepatitis cases reported
this week continues at approximately the same level as
noted since last July. A summary of reported cases over
and under 20 from the 17th through the 41st week appears
on page 8. Only in the New England, Mid-Atlantic and
Pacific districts are there States in which over 50
percent of reported cases are over the age of 20.



EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORT

Salmonella infants Food Poisoning Military Installation
On July 17 and 18, an outbreak of 65 cases of gastro-
enteritis occurred aboard a Navy vessel. Prompt intensive
investigation revealed the probable vehicle to be roast
turkey and the causative organism, Salmonella infantis.
The majority of those ill complained of diarrhea,
cramps and anorexia; between 30 and 45% complained of
headache, chills and fever, nausea and m ralgia. Several
were admitted to sick bay because of the severity of the
symptoms.
Upon questioning, it was found that all of those ill
were in the duty section on Sunday, July 16, and had eaten
in General Mess. No selectivity by age, race, service rate
or berthing area was apparent. Preliminary survey indi-
cated the suspect meal to have been that served in the
late afternoon. The average incubation period was slightly
over 15 hours; 80 percent of the cases fell in the range of
10 to 24 hours.
The late afternoon meal had been served to 225 men
and consisted of the following: roast turkey and dressing,
potatoes, giblet gravy, cranberry sauce, peas, asparagus,
lettuce-tomato salad with French dressing, bread, rolls,
butter, milk and strawberry shortcake with whipped cream.
All of the 65 ill and 53 of those who remained asymp-
tomatic were questioned regarding foods eaten and not
eaten. Turkey appeared to be the most probable vehicle.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


NUMBER OF DEATHS IN SELECTED CITIES


JAN FEB MAR APR MAY


JUN JUL AUG SEP OCT NOV DEC


The chart shows the number of deaths reported for
117 major cities of the United States by week for the cur-
rent year, a 5-week moving average of these figures
plotted at the central week, and an adjusted average for
comparison. For each region the adjusted average was
computed as follows: From the total deaths reported each
week for the years 1956-1960, 3 central figures were
selected by eliminating the highest and lowest figure
reported for that week. A 5-week moving average of the
arithmetic mean of the 3 central figures was then com-
puted with adjustment to allow for population growth in
each region. The average value of the regional increases
was 2 percent which was incorporated in the adjusted
average shown in the chart.
Table 4 shows the number of death certificates re-


ceived during the week indicated for deaths that occurred
in selected cities. Figures compiled in this way, by week
of receipt, usually approximate closely the number of
deaths occurring during the week. However, differences
are to be expected because of variations in the interval
between death and receipt of the certificate and because
of incomplete reporting due to holidays or vacations. If a
report is not received from a city in time to be included
in the total for the current week, an estimate is used.
The number of deaths in cities of the same size may
also differ because of variations in the age, race, and sex
composition of the populations and because some cities
are hospital centers serving the surrounding areas. Changes
from year to year in the number of deaths may be due in
part to population increases or decreases.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


The turkeys, supplied frozen by a North Carolina
packer, were delivered to the installation on May 2. The
boxes were unrefrigerated for 30 minutes before loading
into the freezers. They remained in the freezers until
July 15 when 16 turkeys were removed at 4:00 p.m. to a
non-refrigerated space for thawing. The 16 birds, ranging
from 20 to 25 lbs. in weight, remained in the non-
refrigerated space until 7:00 a.m. on July '6 when they
were put into the oven. However, the cook noticed that
the "insides of the turkeys were still frozen solid" when
they were placed in the oven. The birds were cooked from
7:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at 3000 F., removed from the oven
to cool, and sliced at 2:00 p.m. The sliced turkey was
then put directly on the line for serving. The cook stated
the birds "looked good and tasted good."
No food remained from the suspect meal for laboratory
study. However, rectal swabs were obtained from the 120
individuals interviewed. From 57, salmonella organisms


of the C, group were obtained. All were serotyped as
Salmonella infants. Analysis of the results by those ill
and not ill is presented below:

In summary, the most likely mode of transmission
would appear to have been via the visceral cavity and
adjoining meat of the turkeys which were still frozen when
placed in the oven and not cooked to a sufficient degree
to kill the indigenous salmonella organisms.
