Residents affected by a separate Salmonella incident in Durban


Social media users got to Facebook this week to protest the disease – after eating in the old town of Italy.

Umhlanga's restaurant confirmed that he knows eleven cases which concerned patrons who had seen breakfast at the restaurant.

He says that steps have been taken to tackle the problem. The Old Town of Italy says she has been in contact with the Department of Health.

Resident Durban, Nicola Jenvey, also says that 15 of his family members began to get sick after a potjie family contest on Hillcrest two weeks ago.

"We have a potjie family race and one of our competitors has brought a mustard where you do not fully cook the egg." Of the 20 more competitors – 15 of us were affected, seven in the hospital, three treated and another five more mild, another five with more mild cases, "Jenvey said.

Meanwhile, authorities are trying to spot the source of a Salmonella outbreak in and around Durban.

ECR consumer expert Wendy Knowler told Jane Linley-Thomas that according to the South African Poultry Association – the eggs from the supplier of Old Town of Italy were checked and found not to be the source of salmonella.

Knowler says he spoke to Colin Steenhuisen of the South African Poultry Association.

"They went to the egg supplier – whom they do not call – where the tests were done and sent to a laboratory, saying that these eggs were not the source of Salmonella, says salmonella contaminates the environment, the knife or the cutting wood, but it was not the egg, "Knowler said.
