The illness caused by other types of Salmonella, including Salmonella Enteritidis, which is common in the U.S., is called Salmonellosis.

The legal claims in every Salmonella poisoning lawsuit are based on the following theories of recovery:
The most common source of Salmonella poisoning to you and your family is the feces of infected people or animals. People who come into contact with stool need only pick up a few of the Salmonella bacteria to become infected. Salmonella is found in many other environments as well, including uncooked meat, soil and water. Companies that handle food are required to take measures to prevent contamination and to detect contamination before food is sold to consumers. When that does not happen, people get sick. It is our job as Salmonella attorneys to hold companies liable for selling food contaminated with Salmonella.
