Symptoms of Salmonella infection include fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Illnesses usually resolve themselves within a week, but complications can occur. Young children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems are at a higher risk for more severe illness.
If you think you may have contracted a Salmonella infection, contact your healthcare provider.© Food Safety News
