About Salmonella infections

Food contaminated with Salmonella bacteria usually does not look, smell or taste altered. Anyone can get sick with a Salmonella infection. Infants, children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are at a higher risk of serious illnesses because their immune systems are weak, according to the CDC.

Anyone who has eaten any of the recalled products and who has developed symptoms of Salmonella infection should see a doctor. People who are ill should tell their doctor about possible exposure to Salmonella bacteria as special tests are needed to diagnose salmonellosis. Symptoms of Salmonella infection can mimic other illnesses, often leading to misdiagnoses.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection can include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours of eating contaminated food. Otherwise, healthy adults are usually sick for four to seven days. In some cases, however, the diarrhea can be so severe that patients must be hospitalized.

The elderly, children, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems, such as cancer patients, are more likely to develop serious illness and serious conditions, which can sometimes be fatal.

Some people get infected without getting sick or showing symptoms. However, they can still spread infections to others.
