The FDA says Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail, or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in organisms entering the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis, and arthritis.
