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.

Contaminated foods, especially “protein foods” such as raw meat, poultry and eggs that have not been properly cooked, are the most common source of Salmonellosis. Not washing fresh fruits and vegetables before eating them, as well as not thoroughly cleaning work surfaces (including cutting boards, counter tops and cutlery) used to prepare raw meat and other foods in the kitchen can also cause Salmonella poisoning. Food can also be contaminated by food handlers who do not thoroughly wash their hands with lots of soap and hot water after handling raw meat or visiting the bathroom.

==> For information about Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning), please consult the “Illnesses” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

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.

If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it. Contact the retailer for a refund or replacement. Wash your hands, contaminated preparation surfaces, cutlery and serving dishes thoroughly with hot soapy water and dry. Contact your MD immediately if you experience Salmonellosis symptoms.
