What is Salmonella?

Salmonella infection is a type of food poisoning that is caused by eating food that is contaminated with either of two species of bacteria. One species is called Salmonella enterica and other is called Salmonella bongori. Typically, Salmonella food poisoning shows up as diarrhea, tummy cramps, and fever, beginning 12 to 72 hours after you eat the contaminated food. Many people also experience nausea and vomiting. The condition usually lasts from 4 to 7 days. The foods most likely to be contaminated with Salmonella are eggs that are undercooked, and seafood (especially shellfish) that is raw or undercooked.
