US - Initial tests have found no Salmonella in the feed mill supplying the egg farm at the centre of the latest Salmonella outbreak.

Early tests on chicken feed components have shown no evidence of Salmonella, suggesting that contamination detected earlier in finished feed at Wright County Egg, one of the Iowa companies implicated in a national Salmonella outbreak, may have occurred at the farm, according to a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) official.

Citing a report in Wall Street Journal, CIDRAP reports FDA officials saying the Salmonella Enteritidis source has not been identified and that the investigation is ongoing. Some of the first positive findings in the case were contaminated samples of feed produced at a Wright County Egg mill. The feed was used at Wright County Egg and distributed to Hillandale Farms, the other egg producer at the center of the national egg recall and Salmonella outbreak.
