What is Salmonella?

Salmonella is bacteria that can cause an infection known as salmonellosis. The infection can be serious or even deadly, especially for young children, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems.

Most healthy adults recover without the need for medical attention, but some experience severe diarrhea or invasive infections that they need to be treated in a hospital.

Salmonella infection can spread from the intestines to the bloodstream, and then to other parts of the body. Also, in rare cases, a person may develop Reiter’s syndrome (reactive arthritis) which causes pain in their joints, irritation of the eyes, and painful urination. Reiter’s syndrome can last for months or years, and can lead to chronic arthritis.

 Symptoms

Salmonella related food poisoning usually develops within the first 12-72 hours after ingesting the contaminated food and can last anywhere from 4 to 7 days. Symptoms may include:

  • Repeated diarrhea, which may be bloody
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Dehydration
  • Nausea
  • Irritation and inflammation of the digestive tract
  • Headache
  • Vomiting
