ACT reports more salmonella cases

Health authorities in the Australian Capital Territory are continuing to investigate a salmonella outbreak, which is linked to rockmelons.

It was revealed last month that people in the ACT, Queensland and New South Wales had contracted salmonella from north Queensland rockmelons. There were initially four confirmed cases but ACT Health says that has now risen to seven.

An investigation into which farm the bacteria has come from is ongoing.
