What are the symptoms of salmonella infection?

Salmonella bacteria

Symptoms of salmonella infection can be experienced between six and 72 hours after exposure and symptoms usually last for three to seven days.

Symptoms include:

  • fever
  • diarrhoea
  • vomiting
  • headaches
  • 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.
