​This updated rapid risk assessment gives an overview of an increase in the number of Salmonella Stourbridge cases in Germany during the second half of 2016, with other EU Member States also reporting cases. Whole genome sequencing was carried out in a number of countries to try and establish the source of the outbreak.Based on the microbiological evidence, ECDC does not consider this a multi-country ongoing event so the investigation of the event is being closed at the EU/EEA level and routine monitoring of S. Stourbridge strains occurrence in humans will continue.
