Staphylococcus Aureus is a toxin-producing bacteria that can rapidly cause food poisoning. It can grow in salty foods and survive cooking. About 25% of people have it on their skin or in their nose.
The symptoms of Staph food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and prostration. Severe illnesses can cause headache, muscle ache, and temporary changes in blood pressure or pulse rate.
The bacteria Salmonella is one of the most common sources of food poisoning. The symptoms include fever, diarrhea (may be bloody), vomiting, and abdominal pain. The infection can be severe or deadly. The FDA also warns about the following complications:
“In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.”
