Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with Salmonella may experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, Salmonella can get into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis, according to the FDA and a release from the company.
