Food contaminated with Salmonella

Food contaminated with Salmonella may not smell or looks spoiled, however, it can still make you sick.

Young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with weak immune systems can contract serious and sometimes deadly infections.

Short-term symptoms include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Long-term symptoms can include severe arthritis.
