Sausage and Turkey Salmonella

Salmonella poisoning is the leading cause of bacterial foodborne illnesses in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The illness is responsible for an estimated 400 deaths in the U.S. each year and causes over 1.4 million cases of sickness annually.

People suffering from salmonella poisoning sickness–which could be the result of consuming the contaminated breakfast sausage patties or turkey patties sold by Walmart food stores, among other contaminated foods–may experience the following symptoms: diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and/or fever within 12 to 72 hours after consuming contaminated foods.

Symptoms should be taken seriously as they can result in death–especially in older individuals, infants, and people with weakened immune symptoms. If you suspect you have salmonella poisoning, see a doctor immediately.
