Salmonella Food Poisoning
The FDA warns that Salmonella infections can be life-threatening, especially for people with vulnerable immune systems, young children, or older adults. In some cases, the infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal system and causes severe complications:
“Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. 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.”
