Eighteen children aged 5-6 years who went to kindergarten No 38 in Ussuriisk, the Primorye territory, Russia, were, according to this story, infected with salmonellosis and six workers at the kindergarten also fell ill.

The Itar-Tass News Agency reports that blatant violations in the feeding of children were exposed in the kindergarten, and that the cooking technology and the terms for storing food products were not observed. The kindergarten was closed for quarantine until the infection spot is localized.

Criminal proceedings were instituted over a massive infection among children.
