Salmonella is one of the most common forms of foodborne illness in America. After infection, cases of Salmonella poisoning can develop symptoms over the course of 12 to 72 hours. Those with certain risk factors, including children, the elderly, and those with suppressed immune systems are more likely to develop a serious Salmonella infection. Usually, the symptoms of Salmonella poisoning include vomiting, abdominal cramping, fever, and nausea. Because Salmonella infections can linger or worsen, it is a good idea to contact a medical professional if you or a loved one begins to show the symptoms of Salmonella poisoning.
