Salmonella: risks and symptoms
Salmonella is the bacterial agent most commonly isolated in both sporadic and epidemic foodborne infections. Non-typhoidal salmonella, responsible for more than 50% of all gastrointestinal infections, are one of the most frequent causes of foodborne illness in the industrialized world. Salmonella spp. they can occur in humans and in domestic, farmyard and wild animals. The main reservoirs of infection are represented by animals and their derivatives and the environment (non-drinking water) represent the vehicles of infection. The severity of the symptoms varies from simple gastrointestinal tract disorders (fever, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea) to more serious clinical forms (bacteremia or focal infections affecting, for example, the bones and meninges) which occur mainly in frail subjects (elderly, children and people with immune system deficits). Symptoms of the disease can appear between 6 and 72 hours after ingestion of contaminated food (but more commonly appear after 12-36 hours) and last for 4-7 days. In most cases the disease has a benign course and does not require hospitalization, but sometimes the infection can become serious enough to require hospitalization
