A salmonella infection can be serious and sometimes fatal in young children and in frail or elderly people with weakened immune systems.

Those infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
