About Salmonella Poisoning
Salmonellosis is one of the most common bacterial food borne illnesses and can cause severe illness without proper medical attention.
The most common symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever. These symptoms usually arise between 12 and 72 hours after eating the contaminated foods and last from anywhere between four and seven days.
However, salmonellosis can prove fatal in young children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems.
