Hunting the source of salmonella outbreak takes science and lots of questions

I was curious how health officials, facing an outbreak of salmonella that sickened 21 people, putting more than half in the hospital, found that the source was locally made pet treats.

Answer: Science, teamwork and lots of questions.

More details are in my Telegraph story today - including the fact that nobody inspects animal-food processors, so make sure you always wash your hands after touching dog/cat/gerbil/whatever food.
