Salmonella Food Poisoning (Salmonellosis)
Eating food contaminated with Salmonella bacteria can lead to salmonellosis, an extremely serious bacterial foodborne illness. Salmonellosis infections can be life-threatening, and are especially dangerous to children, the elderly, and those with otherwise compromised immune systems. The most common signs and symptoms of a salmonella food poisoning infection include:
- abdominal chills
- vomiting that can last up to a week
Salmonella bacteria have been reported to cause illnesses in humans for over a century. Today, it is the most common form of bacterial food poisoning reported in the United States. According to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), salmonellosis infects millions of Americans each year, with the majority of cases going unreported.
