Caption: False-colour transmission electron micrograph of the bacterium Salmonella enteritidis, a cause of severe food poisoning. The poisoning results from eating chicken eggs containing the bacterium. Chickens are associated with Salmonella, but until recently it had been the less virulent species of S. typhimurium, which lives in the gut of the chicken & is not found in the reproductive system. S. enteritidis is thought to have spread through chicken feed, aided by the practice among feed processors of adding chicken carcasses to the chicken feed. Magnification: x4300 at 35mm size.
