Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled. Eating food contaminated with these bacteria may cause salmonellosis, a food borne illness. In young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems, salmonellosis can cause serious and deadly infections. In otherwise healthy people, salmonellosis may cause short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhoea. Go to emergency if you think you may have salmonellosis.
