Salmonella poisoning is one of the most common forms of foodborne illness in America. It occurs when someone consumes contaminated food or water. Symptoms of the illness will appear between 12 and 72 hours after infection, and will include abdominal cramping, fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. In many cases, someone infected with Salmonella will recover within a week and without medical attention. However, in those with certain risk factors, such as the elderly, children, and those with suppressed immune systems, the illness may linger or worsen, making medical attention necessary. If you or a loved one begins to show the symptoms of Salmonella poisoning, contact a medical professional.
