Richard Bennett from the Fresh Produce Safety Centre went one step further, calling Australia's salmonella rate "endemic".
He said the bacteria liked our environment so much that "it's present in soils and animals and humans", and was easily transmitted.
However the bacteria can be difficult to identify, and, as Produce Marketing Association A-NZ technology manager Richard Bennett said, "testing is a measure of hygiene at any particular point in time".
"We can't test our way to food safety," he said.

But Fresh Produce Safety Centre technology manager Richard Bennett said consumers shouldn't worry about potentially tainted lettuce unless it had been sitting in their refrigerators.

"It (salmonella case numbers) could have doubled overnight but it didn't, which tells us the health authorities and retailers have been swift and effective in their recall."
Mr Bennett said more cases of the rare salmonella strain were possible, although numbers would start to taper off given the infection period was a maximum 72 hours.
Investigations are under way to determine whether a contaminated water supply, fertiliser or something else could be to blame for the outbreak.
Mr Bennett said Australia was a leader in food safety and systems were usually able to prevent outbreaks of disease.
