A Salmonella outbreak has affected 60 people in a Spanish town with a link to sausage sold in a butcher shop.

La Dirección General de Salud Pública de la Consejería de Sanidad said the outbreak in Calasparra, a municipality in Murcia, led to eight people being hospitalised.

Investigations found most of those infected bought or ate sausage from the shop.

Inspectors have analyzed the butcher shop without finding deficiencies but it has been stopped from selling meat until the investigation has concluded.

Samples of meat on sale the day cases began, surfaces and utensils are being analyzed in the laboratory of Public Health.
