Summary. Evidence on the extent of the part played by infected hens' eggs in causing salmonella food-poisoning is inconclusive. The role of freshly cooked shell eggs is currently much exaggerated. Prevention should be sought through improved catering practices and kitchen hygiene, and attempts to eradicate salmonellas from laying flocks are likely to be ineffective.
