Salmonellosis, the infection caused by the bacteria Salmonella, is one of the most frequently reported foodborne illnesses in the United States.

Foods contaminated with Salmonella are often of animal origin, such as beef, poultry, milk or eggs, but any food may become contaminated.

Typical symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and fever. Most people experience symptoms within 8 to 72 hours after contaminated food is ingested.

Infections usually resolve in 3-7 days, and mild cases often do not require professional treatment. More severe cases require antibiotics.

Proper storage and handling of food helps prevent the growth of Salmonella and thorough cooking destroys the bacteria. Raw or undercooked meat or eggs and raw or unpasteurized dairy products should not be consumed. Produce should be washed thoroughly.
