About Salmonella Poisoning:
Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning) is a very common type of food poisoning caused by the Salmonella bacterium. Although there are thought to be over 2,000 different kinds of these bacteria, only a comparative few make humans sick. Salmonella serotype “Typhimurium” and Salmonella serotype “Enteritidis” are thought to the two most common types in North America.

In young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems, Salmonellosis may cause serious and sometimes deadly infections. Even in otherwise healthy people, Salmonellosis may cause high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. In rare cases, however, Salmonellosis can cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected Aneurysms) Endocarditis and Arthritis.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to peanuts or other nuts within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
