Trichinosis is not a common disease in the United States on account of present day methods of handling meats and the rather universal habit of eating meat only after being well cooked. Occasionally, however, we find people partaking of raw or poorly cooked sausage. An outbreak of the disease resulting from the eating of raw "summer sausage" and involving five or six families and ten or more individuals occurred at Bridgewater, Iowa, last February. Several of the cases proved fatal.
