Abstract

Ten Salmonella enterica serotypes were isolated from fecal samples collected from anesthetized raccoons (n = 738) trapped in six Pennsylvania counties from 2003 to 2005. Comparison of raccoon pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) pulse type data with the Pennsylvania Department of Health PFGE database revealed that the patterns of seven Salmonella serotypes matched those isolated from humans with salmonellosis.
