Salmonella is a bacteria that can make people sick, and most types cause an illness called salmonellosis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Most people with salmonellosis experience symptoms such as diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps, which can occur hours or days after infection, the CDC says, although some do not develop symptoms for several weeks.
Infections are diagnosed by laboratory tests. Most people recover in four to seven days without antibiotics, according to the CDC. Antibiotic treatment is recommended for people with severe illness, those with weakened immune systems, adults 50 and older with medical conditions like heart disease, and infants and adults over 65 years, says the agency.
