Diagnosis of Salmonella Food Poisoning

If you suspect that you have contracted Salmonella, or are experiencing food poisoning symptoms, contact your healthcare professional. He or she can order a stool culture to confirm Salmonella food poisoning. Let your doctor know if you have consumed a product known to be contaminated with Salmonella.
