Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Eating food contaminated with Salmonella leads to salmonellosis, a type of food poisoning. The symptoms of salmonellosis develop 12 to 72 hours after infection, and include diarrhea, fever or abdominal cramps. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. In rare cases, infection with Salmonella can produce more severe illnesses such as arterial infections , endocarditis and arthritis.
