Salmonella is an organism that can cause foodborne illness in a person who eats a food item contaminated with it. Most persons infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most persons recover without treatment.
