The salmonella bacteria can cause about 1.35 million infections, lead to 26,500 hospitalizations and result in 420 deaths in the United States every year, according to the CDC. Food is most often the source and most who get sick have diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps.
Symptoms can begin six hours to six days after infection and last four days to a week, according to the CDC. Most people recover without any treatment but sometimes in cases of severe infection antibiotics or hospitalization could be required.
