Salmonella Info

Salmonella is a bacterium capable of causing a serious and sometimes life-threatening infection known as salmonellosis. One of the most common foodborne illnesses, it can occur when food contaminated by Salmonella is consumed.

According to the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there are an estimated 1.2 million cases in the U.S. each year, with approximately 400 of those cases resulting in death. The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to suffer severe illness or Salmonella complications.

Symptoms of Salmonella

Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning (salmonellosis) may include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain. Symptoms usually appear within 6 to 72 hours after eating a Salmonella contaminated food.

In a small percentage of patients, a condition known as reactive arthritis may develop. Reactive arthritis is characterized by joint pain, eye irritation (conjunctivitis), and/or painful urination. Reactive arthritis symptoms may appear from 1-4 weeks following infection.

Extraordinaire Sprouts Recall

On August 5, 2016, Sprouts Extraordinaire recalled its alfalfa sprouts because the products may be contaminated with the foodborne pathogen, Salmonella. The recalled alfalfa sprouts were sold in 5-pound boxes and labeled “Living Alfalfa Sprouts.”

The CDC recommends that “consumers do not eat and restaurants and other retailers do not sell or serve recalled alfalfa sprouts supplied by Sprouts Extraordinaire.”
