Mayonnaise is probably the culprit. I'm surprised by the number of these events held between mid-June & late-September.

Well that is the problem. Who ever heard of cole slaw with Q? You need BBQ slaw..>. Cabbage, vinegar, peppers, ketchup, brown sugar and several more. No cole, no mayo, no problem.

Those folks may have been smote down for serving improper slaw here in NC.

Coleslaw & chicken. Either one will give you salmonella if the temperature is too warm. I've been mystified. They run these fundraisers all summer & they all have pretty much the same menu.

No, that is not true any more. Mayonnaise (unless it is made from scratch) creates an acidic environment and reduces bacteria growth. It is usually meats that are not held at the correct temperatures for too long that cause the outbreak. Cole slaw does not have a good environment for bacteria to flourish in.

I dread potlucks - people can be disgusting, just notice how many people don't wash their hands in a public bathroom. When I used to work in IT support, the laptops I had to service told me who's food to stay away from.

Mayo has egg in it.

Where I used to live hoagies were the most common fundraiser. Because of the popularity of turkey hoagies, fundraisers from mid-June to late September involved tickets to cash in at a hoagie shop to avoid problems with the meat.

Yes, but they are pasteurized. Mayo is not a high risk - it is the stuff they mix with it.

A lot of the recipes on the Hellmann's site actually suggests to serve certain dishes at room temperature. I just read something about it recently too.
