Case Study #2: Clostridium perfringens at a BBQ Festival

On October 14, 2012 a hospital emergency room physicians called the Public Health Officer at an area health department stating that 11 individuals traveling by bus arrived at the emergency department with symptoms of severe abdominal cramping and
diarrhea.

Within an hour, an additional hospital called stating that they were treating 13 additional patients with the same symptoms. All patients reported leaving a BBQ festival and going straight to the hospital.
The Public Health Officer deploys an outbreak investigation team to interview the ill individuals.

Upon interview completion, the outbreak investigation team determines that all of the individuals attended the festival and ate a variety of different BBQ products.
In order to perform a case-control study, the investigation team retrieved credit card receipts from festival ticket sales and was able to contact more individuals who attended the festival.

They were able to obtain 64 complete interviews (31 interviews of ill individuals and 33 interviews for well individuals).
The outbreak investigation team was able to collect stool samples from patients at both hospitals. The public health laboratory was able to determine that the organism responsible for the outbreak was Clostridium perfringens.

By the time the outbreak investigation team arrived at the festival to collect food samples from the vendors, the festival was near its end and all food items had either been sold or were disposed of, therefore it was not possible to test food items for C perfringens.
Interview Responses were entered into a Microsoft Excel Database
