The article focuses on a case-control study and environmental and laboratory investigations that were conducted on the outbreak of Salmonella gastroenteritis among attendees of a reception held in Connecticut in September 2010. The illness was strongly associated with the potato salad consumed by the attendees. The study found that food service workers have bare-handed contact with ready-to-eat-food. Of the nine patients examined, 8 had abdominal cramping, seven had subjective fever and six had muscle aches and four had blood stools.
