Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled. Symptoms of a Salmonella infection start 6 to 72 hours after exposure to Salmonella bacteria from an infected animal or contaminated product and include vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, fever and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis. Salmonellosis can be deadly to young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Salmonella and other harmful bacterias can normally be killed through proper cooking. It’s advised that you never microwave frozen meat products and instead follow the instructions on the packaging.
