Salmonella infections in Ukraine linked to contaminated poultry

November 14, 2011

CRIMEA, Ukraine — About two tons of contaminated poultry meat were seized in Ukraine’s Crimea region after several people became infected with Salmonella, reported.

A significant decline in sales for the region’s poultry industry is expected as a result of the incident.

“At Dnipropetrovsk poultry complex, where the poisoned chicken was produced, everything is fine, they presented a quality certificate. But from there the production has been delivered to the warehouses of Simferopol. But where and how the meat has been infected is still not known. Soon we will figure out who delivered this production to the regional markets. The situation is being investigated by veterinarians," the press service of the governor of the region reported.
