unassociated with outbreaks.
Japan Influenza A2 virus has been isolated from
cases in Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Gumma. The outbreaks
which began in Tokyo in January 1962, is spreading over
other prefectures.

USSR Influenza A2 (Asian) has been reported from
Moscow.

gists; collaborating laboratories of the Influenza Center

demiology Division, Department of National Health and
Welfare, Ottawa, Canada; Prof. Dr. J. Mulder, Academisch
Ziekenhuis, Leiden, The Netherlands; World Health
Organization, Geneva, Switzerland).


HEPATITIS The 1,519 cases of hepatitis for the week
ending February 17 remain at the same level as the
preceding week.

POLIOMYELITIS Two cases of poliomyelitis, one


paralytic, are reported for the week ending February 17,
1962.



EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORT


Salmonellosis Florida
Twenty-four hours after having consumed a noonday
meal at a small hotel in Florida on September 24, 1961,
19 of 24 individuals had sudden onsets of illness char-
acterized by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and weakness.
The illness was severe enough to cause the hospitali-
zarion of 12.
Salmonella montetvdeo was isolated from 17 individ-
uals. Cheese pudding was most likely the contaminated
food item causing the outbreak. The chart below shows
the food history and results of stool culture on the 24
individuals at risk.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


Investigation revealed that the dishwasher-waitress
had not been feeling well the week of September 17 and
had been nauseated the night of September 23. However,
she did work the entire day of September 24. The follow-
ing day she was too ill to work. The cook had been and
remained in good health. Both food handlers had positive
cultures for Salmonella montevideo.
In the preparation of the food the waitress had grated
cheese for the cheese pudding, made the iced tea, han-
dled the ice, and waited on the tables, the cheese pud-
ding was prepared by placing alternate layers of bread
chunks and grated cheese in a pan. Milk was poured over
the ingredients and the pudding placed in the oven just
long enough for the cheese to melt, approximately 10 to
15 minutes. The pan was then removed from the oven,


placed on the side of the stove, and left until served.
Considering the excellent media which the cheese
pudding provided for bacterial growth, the high attack
rate for those having consumed the product and the man-
ner in which it was prepared, it is felt that possibly one
of the food handlers contaminated this product with
salmonella which grew to the extent that they were in
quantities capable of causing illness. The remaining
foods were handled in such a manner that they were not
likely to have been the vehicle involved in the outbreak.
(Reported by Dr. James O. Bond, Director, Bureau of
Preventable Disease, Florida State Board of Health and
Dr. Charles Waters, EIS Officer assigned to Florida
State Board of Health).


INFANT DEATHS IN 108 UNITED STATES CITIES


Deaths under one year of age were slightly (4.3 per-
cent) above the "expected" number during the four weeks
ending February 17th. The Influenza B epidemic of recent
weeks may have been associated with the increase in
infant mortality to a minor extent but it seems more
probable that the increase merely reflects normal vari-
ability. Pneumonia-influenza deaths have exceeded the
the epidemic threshold for the last seven weeks but during


the same period average excess infant mortality amounted
to only one half of one percent.
