Paralytic cases reported over the past six weeks
represent but 26 percent of the total reported during a
comparable period in 1958, the previous low year in over
a decade.
Three additional paralytic cases were reported this
week from Frederick County, Maryland, bringing to six
the number of paralytic cases occurring in this county
thus far this year. Onset dates for these cases range
between June 30 and July 15. Five of the six are among
unvaccinated individuals. Type III poliovirus has been
isolated from two.
The three cases reported from the State of Washington
all are from Seattle. Since April, five cases have occurred
in Seattle; two cases occurred during April and one each

in May, June, and July. Four of the five cases are among
adults; two had received two doses of vaccine and one,
four doses. The cases are scattered throughout the city.
Type III polio virus has been isolated from two patients.
Other cases reported this week show a scattered
geographical distribution.

Hepatitis Reported cases of hepatitis this week
totaled 1,119, essentially the same prevalence as during
the past five weeks.

Plague -The death of a sawmill worker on June 30
in Pecos, New Mexico has been confirmed in the labora-
tory as having been due to Pasteurella peslis. The area
of presumed exposure is geographically remote; no addi-
tional cases are known. Further studies are in progress.

have been reported from Los Angeles, California and
St. Paul, Minnesota.
The first cases occurred among two Los Angeles
families in mid June. Investigations revealed that a
hollandaise sauce served at a common dinner was the
suspect vehicle. Cultures of sauce remaining in the jar
revealed Salmonella typhamurium. A second family out-
break implicating this same product occurred about a week
after the first. Ten bottles of the sauce were subsequently
obtained in the Los Angeles area and five of these were
reported to have yielded Salmonella typhimurium.
Intensive investigations were carried out by the
Food and Drug Administration. The product, Hayden's
Hollandaise Sauce (manufactured by Hayden's Hollan-
daise, Inc., College Point, New York), was found to have
been shipped nationwide. A large number of shipments
were examined and salmonella organisms were found in
lots obtained in San Antonio, Texas; San Francisco,
California; and Washington, D. C. Attempts to identify
particular shipments as suspect proved fruitless when it
was found that the codes used on the shipping cases
were meaningless.
Subsequently, an outbreak of enteritis was reported
among four of six members of a St. Paul, Minnesota

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.

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.

family. On July 5 the family had eaten a dinner which
included broccoli with hollandaise sauce. All wh6 con-
sumed the broccoli had become ill. Salmonella lyphimu-
rium was isolated from fecal specimens obtained from two
of the patients and from two opened, partially used jars
of the Hayden's Hollandaise Sauce. The sauce had been
purchased about June 15 and refrigerated until served.
The manufacturing firm discontinued production on
June 21. On July 12, a press release was issued by the
Food and Drug Administration warning consumers to
destroy any jars in their possession and asking dealers
to stop further sale.
(Reported by Dr. Herbert H. Cowper, Director, Communi-
cable Disease Control Division, Los Angeles City Health
Department; Dr. D. S. Fleming, Director, Division of
Disease Prevention and Control, Minnesota Department of
Health; and Food and Drug Administration, Department of
Health, Education, and Welfare.)


Staphylococcal Food Poisoning Ohio

In late June, ren cases of staphylococcal food
poisoning occurring among four entirely unrelated groups
of people in two counties were found to relate to the con-
sumption of a commercially prepared ham loaf. The loaves
had been purchased from three different stores but pro-
duced by a single packer.
Investigation of the packing house and its workers
revealed that one of the workers who handled the suspect
product after cooking was a nasal carrier of a staphylo-
coccus, phage strain 6/53/75/77,'83. Numerous samples
of the suspected product grew staphylococci of the same
phage type and an organism of the same strain was iso-
lated from the stool of one of the patients.

municable Diseases, Ohio Department of Health.)

SOURCE AND NATURE OF MORBIDITY DATA

These provisional data are based on reports to the
Public Health Service from the health departments of
each State and Puerto Rico. They give the total number
of cases of certain communicable diseases reported
during the week usually ended the preceding Saturday.
Total figures for the United States and the Pacific Divi-
sion include data for the States of Alaska and Hawaii.
Cases of anthrax, botulism, and rabies in man are not
shown in table 2, but a footnote to table 1 shows the
States reporting these diseases. When diseases of rare
occurrence are reported by a State (cholera, dengue,
plague, louse-borne relapsing fever, smallpox, louse-
borne epidemic typhus, and yellow fever) this is noted
below table 1.
