This papers examines the trends in S. enteritidis infection in the US from 1985 to 1999 based on surveillance data for sporadic infections and outbreaks reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Overall, rates of sporadic S. enteritidis infection, outbreaks, and deaths have declined. Prevention and control strategies along the entire farm-to-table continuum, and a plan for further reduction of S. enteritidis infections are suggested. Emerg Infect Dis 2004;10:1-7.
