Housecall for Health: Symptoms of Salmonella

Two recent food-borne illness outbreaks have the public keeping an eye out for symptoms of salmonella.  But just what are those symptoms?

FOX’s Colleen Cappon has more on the illness in today’s “Housecall for Health”:

Two different U.S. outbreaks of salmonella have consumers concerned.  Salmonella is a bacterial infection that causes severe food poisoning and can be life-threatening for infants, elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.

Symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within 72 hours of eating contaminated food.  The FDA says be cautious with raw seafood and pay attention to food recalls, but most importantly, when it doubt, don’t eat it.
