Food contaminated with Salmonella
may not look or smell spoiled. Consumption of
food contaminated with this bacteria may cause
salmonellosis, a foodborne illness. In young children,
the elderly and people with weakened immune systems,
salmonellosis may cause serious and sometimes
deadly infections. In otherwise healthy people,
salmonellosis may cause short-term symptoms such
as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea,
abdominal pain and diarrhea. Long-term complications
may include severe arthritis.
