Update on New Bolton Salmonella Outbreak

In an update on the outbreak of salmonella at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center hospital, Bruce Rappoport, associate dean of the hospital, stated on May 14: “We have identified 16 horses that tested positive for salmonella either before or at their time of death, but we have not determined if salmonella was the cause of death--many of these animals were critically ill at the time of admission. We hope to reopen by early July; during this time cases are being referred to other large animal facilities in the Northeast. We are continuing to provide Laboratory services and Pathology services.”
