Staph aureus (Staph) is a common bacteria found on the skin and noses of up to 25% of healthy adults. Unlike most bacteria, it can grow in salty foods and survive cooking.
People who eat food contaminated with Staph toxins can rapidly develop nausea, vomiting, retching, abdominal cramping, and prostration. In more severe cases, patients experience headache, muscle cramping, and transient changes in blood pressure and pulse.
Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause severe and sometimes fatal infections in young children, older adults, and people with underlying health problems. In healthy adults, symptoms may include fever, diarrhea (may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
According to the FDA, infections can also lead to serious 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.”
