HC Deb 20 May 1963 vol 678 c3W
Mr. Kitson

asked the Minister of Health (1) the origin of infection in frozen liquid egg of salmonella paratyphoid B; and whether this disease is confined to human beings.

(2) the suspected method of contamination of frozen liquid Chinese egg.

Mr. Braine

I am advised that infection may come from the eggs themselves, from water used for cleansing the equipment, or from a human carrier engaged in the process. I have no evidence of the source in the case of Chinese egg. The organism occurs in many animals.
