Food can become contaminated with Salmonella in several ways. Often, restaurant outbreaks are caused by an infected food worker who did not properly wash hands after using the restroom. But food can also arrive at restaurants tainted with Salmonella. Produce can become contaminated by soil or water and bacteria from the intestines of animals can be transferred to meat and poultry during slaughter.

Salmonella Symptoms

Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include nausea, fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea that can be bloody. Usually, these symptoms develop within six to 72 hours of exposure.
