Abstract
The genus Sulmonella contains a wide variety of bacterial species, some of which are of zoonotic importance. One of the commonly encouraged species that causes septicaemia and gastroenteritis is S. enteritidis (Sonnenwirth, 1980; Clarke and Gyles, 1986). It was first isolated in man in 1888 from a patient who had died following consumption of meat contaminated with this organism (Morgan, 1948).
