Shigella is an important food borne pathogen in India. Shigella sonnei and non-agglutinable Shigella seem to be steadily surfacing. We are reporting a food borne outbreak of Shigella sonnei from our region. Shigella sonnei were isolated in 7 samples of 9 patients who had consumed common food made up of rice, potato, milk and water. The strains were sensitive to ampicillin, chloramphenicol, ceftiaxone, tetracycline and furazolidone. Patients were treated successfully with oral rehydration therapy, metronidazole and ceftriaxone.
