The Buckfire Law Firm specializes in food poisoning lawsuits and has represented victims in other food poisoning outbreaks in the past. The FDA is still investigating the source of the contamination.

What is Salmonella and What are The Symptoms?

Salmonella is a bacterial disease that affects the intestinal tract. Salmonella bacteria typically live in animal and human intestines and is shed through feces. Humans become infected with salmonella through contaminated food or water.

Some people with salmonella infections have no symptoms, but most people will experience diarrhea, fever and stomach cramping 8-72 hours after exposure.

Symptoms include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Stomach cramps
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Chills
  • Headache
  • Blood in feces

Signs and symptoms of salmonella generally last a few days to one week. Diarrhea may last up to 10 days. In some cases, diarrhea can cause severe dehydration requiring medical attention. Life-threatening complications may also develop if the infection spreads beyond the intestines.

Causes of Salmonella Food Poisoning

Salmonella bacteria live in the intestines of humans and animals. Most people who develop salmonella have consumed contaminated water or food, which include:

  • Raw meat, poultry, and seafood. Contamination may happen during the butchering process, or seafood may be harvested from contaminated water.
  • Raw or undercooked eggs. Contamination may happen when an infected chicken is producing eggs, or raw eggs are used in certain recipes like hollandaise.
  • Unpasteurized dairy products, such as raw milk.
  • Fruits and vegetables. Some fresh produce may be irrigated in a field or washed with contaminated water.
  • Improperly handled food, such as when someone doesn’t wash their hands thoroughly after using the bathroom or changing a diaper.

Salmonella Prevention

There are several ways to prevent salmonella contamination, including:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly after using the bathroom, changing a diaper, or preparing food.
  • Store items separately in your fridge, and keep meats away from other foods.
  • Wash food preparation surfaces thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Avoid raw eggs and raw dairy products.
  • Cook and store food properly.
