There was a really severe case of Salmonella food poisoning a few years ago near us.
Outside caterers had made chocolate mousse in large quantities for a party, and just one of the eggs that he used raw was infected with the virus.
A lot of people were really ill, and a couple of people were close to death because they lost so much body fluid.
This really is a nasty virus, and by all accounts very easily transmitted.
