Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps six hours to six days after being exposed to the bacteria. The illness usually lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment, but some people may require hospitalization.
People most likely to have severe illness are children younger than 5 years, adults 65 years and older, and people with weakened immune systems. Seek medical attention and contact your local public health district if you think you have Salmonella infection.
