About Salmonella Food Poisoning and Salmonellosis

Salmonellosis is an infection caused a bacterium called Salmonella. One of the most common foodborne illnesses, it occurs when food contaminated by Salmonella is consumed.

The U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1,027,561 cases of salmonellosis occur in the United States each year. Approximately 400 of those cases result in death.

Salmonella Food Poisoning Symptoms and Complications

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. In more severe cases, the Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the blood stream and other body sites. This can result in death, unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics. The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to suffer severe salmonellosis symptoms and its complications.

A small number of people who are infected with Salmonella will develop Reiter’s Syndrome, also referred to as “reactive arthritis.” This syndrome is characterized by joint pain, irritation of the eyes (conjunctivitis), and painful urination. Some patients who experience Reiter’s Syndrome will go on to develop chronic arthritis.
