One case was notified on September 17th after the death of the
patient. The notification was withdrawn on October 16th.
Two absentees from work were reported from a Metropolitan
Borough in connection with an illness possibly caused by food at
a staff canteen. In one case the symptoms were slight and the
patient returned to work in a few days. The second patient had a
more severe attack, but the bacteriological investigation proved to
be negative to micro-organisms of the Salmonella group.
