These are the Salmonella symptoms. Salmonella is usually caused by eating raw or undercooked meat, poultry, eggs or egg products.

This is what Salmonella in adults looks like. However, in certain people- especially infants and young children, older adults, transplant recipients, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems- the development of complications can be dangerous.

Salmonella is a common bacterial disease that affects the intestinal tract. Salmonella bacteria typically live in animal and human intestines and are shed through feces. Humans become infected most frequently through contaminated water or food.

This is how to prevent or avoid Salmonella in your kitchen. Contamination also occur in the kitchen, when juices from raw meat and poultry come into contact with uncooked foods, such as salads.

The incubation period for Salmonella is 6-72 hours but is typically 18-36 hours.
