Salmonella Food Poisoning Symptoms
Salmonella food poisoning symptoms may include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain. The symptoms usually appear within 6 to 72 hours after consuming a Salmonella contaminated food.
Although most people recover within 4-7 days, the elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to suffer the severe effects of Salmonella food poisoning
