  • 1.  This experiment was made to determine whether the Chinese soy bean sauce plays any part in the dissemination of diseases caused by organisms of the typhoid and dysentery group.
  • 2.  Thirty samples of sauces were examined; 35% of these samples showed evidence of contamination either with , or bacilli.
  • 3.  The hypertonicity and acidity of the samples have no significant germicidal effect on these organisms, and inoculated into the sauce can survive for many days.
  • 4.  The fact that the soy bean sauce is frequently consumed raw and often contaminated with the typhoid-dysentery group of organisms suggests the possibility that they play a part in the dissemination of intestional infections in this country.
