Reported cases of salmonella infection in Victoria have risen 21% in the past five months, according to the Department of Human Services (DHS).

There have been over 800 reported cases of salmonella in the state so far this year, a 21% increase compared with the same time in 2006, said spokeswoman Dr Rosemary Lester.
“Investigations into some cases of salmonella have indicated the illness may have been associated with raw eggs in food,” Dr Lester said.
