What are the symptoms of salmonella infection?
Symptoms of salmonella infection can be experienced between six and 72 hours after exposure and symptoms usually last for three to seven days.
- stomach cramps
- loss of appetite
Anyone who develops these symptoms and is concerned should see their doctor, particularly young children, older people, pregnant women and people who are immunocompromised because they are at risk of more severe illness.
