Salmonella: What You Need to Know

About Salmonella


Salmonella is a type of bacteria that can cause food poisoning. It is usually present in raw eggs, meat, and poultry. Salmonella can also be found on the outside of fruit and vegetables that have not been washed well before being eaten. Symptoms of Salmonella include diarrhea, fever, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, chills or headache.

If you experience these symptoms within 12 hours after consuming anything from this list: raw eggs (including eggnog), uncooked meats (including ground beef), unpasteurized milk or juice products containing apple or pear juices; contact your doctor.

 

How Common Is Salmonella?

Salmonella infections are surprisingly common. The CDC estimates salmonella causes about 1.35 million illnesses, 26,500 hospitalizations, and 420 deaths in the United States every year.  Infections are more common in the summer than the winter. This is because salmonella grows quickly in higher temperatures.
 

How Harmful is Salmonella?

In severe cases, you may need to go to the hospital. In rare cases, it can be life-threatening.  In most cases, illness lasts 4–7 days and people recover without antibiotic treatment.
 

What Causes Salmonella?

People and animals can carry salmonella in their intestines and their feces. The bacteria often spread through contaminated foods. Common food sources of salmonella infection include raw and undercooked meat, raw fruits and fegetables, and unpasteurized dairy.

Other common sources include:
  • Raw or undercooked eggs
  • Processed foods e.g. chicken nuggets
  • You can also get salmonella directly through:
  • Poor handwashing is one of the most common ways people can contract Salmonella..
  • Pets can carry Salmonella bacteria.

 

Who is at risk of getting Salmonella? 

  • Young children and the elderly are particularly susceptible to getting sick from salmonella.
  • Taking certain medications can make it easier for salmonella to survive.
  • Inflammatory bowel disease can damage the intestines, making them more susceptible to salmonella.

What are the symptoms of Salmonella?

Signs and symptoms of a salmonella infection are mostly stomach-related. Signs include:
  • Stomach Cramps
  • Bloody stools
  • Diarrhea
  • Cold and chills
  • Stomach Cramps
  • Bloody stools
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Upset stomach
  • Throwing up
Symptoms tend to surface 8-72 hours after infection. Most symptoms don’t last more than a week, but it may take several months for your bowel movements to get back to normal.

 

When to call a doctor?

Children, older adults or anyone with a weakened immune system should see a doctor if they have any of these symptoms for more than couple days:
  • Bloody stools
  • Dehydration
  • High fever

How is Salmonella Diagnosed?

Your doctor might ask for a blood test or fecal sample to identify if you have Salmonella.
You may be asked to provide a sample for testing in order to figure out the exact kind of bacteria you have. This can help health officials trace where the infection originated when there is an outbreak in your area.

 

What is the treatment for Salmonella?

If you have diarrhea, drink a lot of water and fluids. Your doctor may recommend drinking Pedialyte depending on the severity of your symptoms. In cases with infants, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems,  antibiotics may be prescribed.

In the case of a child, the doctor may let the infection progress without intervention if the child has a healthy immune system, but will likely prescribe medication if ther is a high fever.

If antibiotics are subscribed take the medication exactly as directed and complete the full course of treatment; in some cases, these medicines can be used preventively to stop a salmonella infection from taking hold in an at-risk person's gut tissue.
