Salmonella poisoning is a very common form of foodborne illness. Salmonella infections occur after the ingestion of contaminated food and water. Symptoms of Salmonella poisoning begin to appear between 12 and 72 hours after infection. Symptoms associated with Salmonella poisoning include diarrhea, abdominal cramping, fever, and nausea. In many cases, someone infected with Salmonella will recover on their own without medical intervention. However if the illness worsens or lingers, a health professional may need to be contacted.
