We hear there’s been some salmonella activity on PulseNet during the last few days, and now comes this report of an outbreak at Princeton University where everyone who needs an excuse for delaying a final exam probably now has one.

The University reports that up to 60 students have come down with some sort of stomach flu, while three students and an employee have tested positive for salmonella.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that no one involved in the outbreak has any connections to the Princeton University food service.  "Four Cases of Salmonella at Princeton University" can be found here.

PulseNet detects foodborne disease case clusters by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE).
