Symptoms of Salmonella infection may include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain. Symptoms usually appear 6 to 72 hours after the ingestion of contaminated food.
While most people recover within 4 to 7 days, diarrhea and vomiting may become so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to suffer severe salmonellosis symptoms and its complications.
