Netherlands smoked fish spurs salmonella outbreak

THE HAGUE, Netherlands -- Smoked salmon tainted with salmonella bacteria has sickened hundreds of people in the Netherlands, sparking major recalls there and in the U.S., Dutch authorities said.

U.S. health authorities say they are also investigating possible effects from the salmon.

The Netherlands' National Institute for Public Health and the Environment said the salmon has been traced to the Dutch company Foppen, which sells fish to many major Dutch supermarkets and to stores around the world, including the United States.

The institute said in a statement that around 200 people — and likely more — in the Netherlands and more than 100 people in the United States have been sickened by a strain of the bacteria called Salmonella Thompson.
