  1. a Matched odds ratio (calculated using conditional logistic regression analysis), b Confidence interval, C Population attributable risk
  2. Age-group (<1 year, 2-<6 years and 6-10 years) matched analysis between cases and control was performed. Model was adjusted for race, household income, and other known risk factors for salmonellosis [contact with a person having GI symptoms and other food related exposure (eating egg/meat/poultry)]. Exposure data were gathered for the 3 days prior to child's illness onset for cases and 3 days before the interview for controls
