Following prevalence of salmonella (沙門氏桿菌) in coastal areas, Taiwanese consumers are advised not to eat uncooked foods, the Broadcasting Corporation of China (中國廣播公司) reports today (full Chinese-language article here). These include Japanese-style sashimi, live-cooked prawns, raw poultry eggs, turtle blood, and even raw vegetables. Water should also be boiled properly before being drunk.
People with swollen limbs or persistent fevers should consult their doctors.
