Salmonella is a bacteria that can get in foods. Everyone is at risk, but pregnant women, older people, and anyone with chronic illnesses. Salmonella can last any where from 4-7 days, so make sure you cook it right.
Salmonella is a very serious bacteria. If you get the bacteria, you have a chance of having kidney failure, chronic arthritis, brain/nerve damage, or worst of all, death. The symptoms of this is nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headaches, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, or blood in the stool.
A lot of salmonella is found in raw food products that came from animals. An example of this is like eggs, egg products, meats, meat products, unpasteurized milk, or other unpasteurized dairy products. However, when you cook it, it kills the bacteria.
The best way to make sure you don't get this is by making sure your food is complete on the right temperature and for the right time.
