While recommendations for treatment of asymptomatic food workers who are nontyphoidal Salmonella (NTS) carriers need additional convincing evidence, there is inadequate information about duration of excretion of NTS in healthy asymptomatic adults. In a previous report, it was found that 254 (98.8%) of 257 asymptomatic adult NTS excreters had eradicated their initial NTS infection at the first bacteriologic assessment, which was a shorter time than an earlier study had reported. Hygienic education about enteric infection and prevention of spreading was given to all participants at the beginning of the study.

These two systems show high structural similarities and are classified as the type III secretion system, but...
