Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections in the very young or old, and in people with weak immune systems. Symptoms of infection can include fever, diarrhea (possibly bloody), nausea and vomiting, as well as abdominal pain. More uncommon, infection from Salmonella can also cause arterial infections, ednocarditis and arthritis. For more information, visit the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service website.
