The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is investigating a Salmonella outbreak linked to snakes and feeder rodents across eight provinces. The outbreak has resulted in 70 confirmed cases of illness, 10 individuals have been hospitalized, and one fatality reported. The provinces affected include British Columbia (3), … See More
Alberta (10), Saskatchewan (7), Manitoba (3), Ontario (32), Quebec (11), New Brunswick (1) and Newfoundland and Labrador (3).

Many of the individuals who fell ill reported direct or indirect contact with snakes and feeder rodents before their illnesses occurred. Some did not handle the animals themselves but lived in the same house where they were kept. A single common supplier of snakes or feeder rodents has not been identified, indicating that Salmonella bacteria can be found in many species of animals, including snakes and feeder rodents.

The outbreak, which spans from British Columbia to Newfoundland and Labrador, has been ongoing since February 2022. The infected individuals range in age from 0 to 96, with 19% of the cases involving children 5 years or younger.

The issue was first identified due to an increase in reports of Salmonella illnesses across Canada. Through the use of whole genome sequencing, it was determined that some illnesses dating back to 2022 were caused by the same outbreak strain as the illnesses that occurred in 2023 and 2024. The investigation is ongoing, and recent illnesses continue to be reported to PHAC.

You can get sick with Salmonella by touching reptiles and rodents, their food, and their environments and then touching your face, eyes, or mouth without washing your hands. To prevent further spread of the disease, individuals are advised to practice good hand hygiene and frequent handwashing after contact with snakes, feeder rodents, and their environments.

In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

I ordered some Trump shoes, not sure who it was ordered from. It arrived but the shoes are about 2 sizes too big on me and no recourse to exchange them. I think the delivery was either post link or speedx. The tracking does not work on either. So in my case, I ordered these shoes but can’t remember from where and no email reply’s.

The PHAC is collaborating with provincial public health partners to investigate an outbreak of Salmonella infections linked to snakes and feeder rodents. As of April 13, 2023, there are 45 confirmed cases of Salmonella illness reported in this outbreak in the following provinces: British Columbia (1), Alberta … See More
(5), Saskatchewan (1), Manitoba (3), Ontario (22), Quebec (11), New Brunswick (1) and Newfoundland and Labrador (1). 9 individuals have been hospitalized. 1 person has died and provincial public health partners have confirmed that Salmonella was the cause of death. Individuals became sick between February 2022 and March 2023.

Many of the individuals who became sick reported having direct or indirect contact with snakes and feeder rodents (used as reptile food) before their illnesses occurred. The collaborative outbreak investigation was initiated this spring because of an increase in reports of Salmonella illnesses in multiple jurisdictions across Canada. Using a laboratory method called whole genome sequencing, some Salmonella illnesses dating back to 2022 were determined to have the same genetic type as the illnesses that occurred in 2023. The investigation is ongoing.

Reptiles and rodents can carry Salmonella. You can get sick with Salmonella by touching reptiles and rodents, their food, and their environments and then touching your face, eyes, or mouth without washing your hands. The PHAC advises the following tips to prevent the direct or indirect spread of Salmonella to others:
- Always wash your hands immediately after touching a reptile or rodent, and anything they eat, or after being in the area where they live, play or touch.
- Regularly clean any surfaces or objects your reptile or rodent touches with soapy water followed by a household sanitizer.
- Never kiss a pet rodent or reptile.
- Do not keep reptiles or rodents in homes, daycare centers, schools, or other facilities with children aged 5 years and under.
- Always supervise children when they touch or play with reptiles or rodents. Do not let them put reptiles and rodents or their supplies near their face or share their food or drinks with pets. Make sure they thoroughly wash their hands after touching reptiles or rodents. Children 5 years and under should not handle reptiles or rodents.
- Do not clean or bathe reptiles or rodents in the kitchen sink, bathroom sinks, or bathtubs.
- Do not keep food used for reptiles or rodents in the kitchen or any room where people eat or drink.
- Keep reptiles and rodents and all their food, containers, enclosures, and any objects that have been in their enclosures, such as plants or enrichment items, away from the kitchen and other places where food is made or eaten.
- Do not keep frozen rodents in the same fridge or freezer as human food.
- Freezing rodents does not kill Salmonella
- Always defrost and prepare frozen rodents outside the kitchen, using dedicated utensils and containers.
- Be aware of the specific needs of your reptile. Stress for a reptile can increase the shedding of Salmonella.
- Always keep reptiles and live rodents in habitats specifically designed for them.
- If you choose to have a reptile or rodent in your home, talk to your health care provider or veterinarian about the right reptile or rodent for your family, especially if your family includes children 5 years and younger, pregnant people, immunocompromised individuals, or adults 65 years of age and over.

In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

I have been waiting for an order of clothes from china. Ive been tracking the package and it said it was delivered yesterday. But all that was in mail yesterday was a fake 1carat diamond ring with a lifetime warranty. I have no idea who sent it. … See More
I did not order it or pay for it. I searched the senders address in Las vegas & it lead me to this site. I have seen multiple reviews with complaints about receiving an empty package and other items. I just checked the package again and under las vegas address is a address in China. I will contact bank to dispute charged for clothing I never received. I guess they make money on the many Americans who don't bother to dispute the charges.
