Snow peas implicated in cyclosporiasis outbreak for first time

first_imgSep 24, 2004 (CIDRAP News)—Raw snow peas have been linked to an outbreak of cyclosporiasis in Pennsylvania that may have sickened almost 100 people, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has announced.A Sep 17 early-release Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) article said CDC and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials are working with the Guatemalan government to determine the source of the Guatemalan-grown snow peas and how the produce became contaminated.Pennsylvania public health officials noted about 50 potential cases of cyclosporiasis among residents, staff, and volunteers affiliated with a residential facility, MMWR said. Illnesses began in early June and lasted through early July.Of 349 people with connections to the facility, 96 had symptoms including diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, and aches starting within 1 to 14 days of attending one of five special events there. Forty Cyclospora cayetanensis infections were laboratory-confirmed; the other 56 cases were termed probable C cayetanensis.C cayetanensis is a one-celled parasite. Cyclosporiasis can occur when people ingest food or water contaminated with infected stool, the CDC said.Investigation quickly focused on determining what foods had been served at five special events that took place at the facility in May and June, MMWR reported. Pasta salad containing snow peas was linked to the outbreak.All of the snow peas used by the facility came from one container, which was purchased on May 21 and refrigerated until the last batch of salad was made on Jun 22, when the remaining peas were discarded. No peas were available for testing, but investigators said the snow peas were the only salad ingredient that meet criteria necessary to have caused the outbreak, according to MMWR. Those criteria were: being in all three batches of the salad served at the five events, being from the same lot, and being served only at those five events.The outbreak marks the first instance of the parasitic disease implicating snow peas. Other culprits have included raspberries, basil, and mesclun lettuce from various countries.The largest outbreak of cyclosporiasis, affecting more than 1,400 people in North America, took place in 1996, according to “Epidemiologic studies of Cyclospora cayetanensis in Guatemala,” published in the November-December 1999 issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases. Raspberries were associated with the outbreak, prompting water-quality and sanitary-practice improvements on berry farms.Guatemalan raspberries have since been implicated in other outbreaks, including a wedding in 2000 in Philadelphia, Pa. Fifty-four people fell ill after eating the wedding cake, which contained raspberries found to contain Cyclospora, according to an August 2002 article in Emerging Infectious Diseases.CDC.

A WHO spokesman said results of the meeting may be available tomorrow.http://www.who.int/entity/immunization/sage/DRAFT_AGENDA_Oct_SAGE_meeting_9_Oct.pdfOct 27-29 WHO SAGE agendaVaccine production reaches 23.2 million dosesThe cumulative total of H1N1 vaccine doses available reached 23.2 million today, up about 800,000 from yesterday’s 22.4 million, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said at a press conference today.

Scott Gottlieb, MD, said the use of adjuvants could have stretched supplies. He said a focus on single-dose vials has slowed vaccine delivery, as has reliance on outdated egg-based production.http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704335904574497324151841690.htmlOct 27 Wall Street Journal articleOman launches H1N1 vaccine campaignHealth authorities in Oman said yesterday that they have started the country’s pandemic H1N1 vaccine campaign after receiving the first 100,000 doses of its 2.6 million dose order, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported.

The loss of LRH of almost 17 million kuna damages the image of the entire destination?

first_imgAlthough LRH is on sale, it is still uncertain who the new buyer will be. At the moment, the only thing that is certain is that it will not be Singapore Investment Fund because the company, for technical reasons, cannot provide them with a five-star lift. What deters potential buyers from the company is allegedly the price, but also the idea of ​​separating non-functional assets into a separate company, and selling only the core business of the company, which is not in the interest of the local community. When the company will be sold, to whom and at what price, remains to be seen. Although the total revenues of LRH of HRK 322,7 million for 2018 are at the level of the previous one, total expenditures increased by almost 12 percent, to HRK 339,4 million. Expenditures for employees had the largest impact, rising by HRK 33,7 million. Among the figures is that the loss of LRH amounted to as much as 16,7 million kuna, but it is an interesting fact that now the former President of the Management Board Igor Šehanović was paid a bonus of 14,1 million kuna. ( ZSE report ) Source: ZSE / Novi List – Photo: Remisens Hotels & Villas / Facebook In June last year, the Supervisory Board of the Republic of Croatia approved the termination of the contract of the President of the Management Board Igor Šehanović, which agreed on the payment of bonuses of HRK 14,1 million, while the total gross amount is slightly more than HRK 28 million. Last week, the Zagreb Stock Exchange (ZSE) published a report on the financial condition of Liburnija Riviera Hotel for 2018. Mayor of Opatija Ivo Dujmić, for Novi List stated that this business result greatly damages the image of the Opatija Riviera. “And that is why I think that such moves must not damage the image of the destination. Given that LRH is the most economically important hotel group in Liburnia, the City, through the company Nova Liburnija, warned in an open letter that this payment could result in such a negative business result. But now the situation is as it is and I believe that the current and future owner and management will no longer make such decisions, or that the business will go in the direction of destination development. In previous periods, it was not a practice to pay a dividend, but it was reinvested in raising the quality of facilities, and I hope that a new investor will come on this path who will further invest in the development and raising the value of the company and the destination itself.”, Commented Dujmić.
