Pheno Extreme – Salmonella

Salmonella is a food poisoning type which is caused by Salmonella enterica bacterium. The bacteria lives in the gut of many farm animals and can affect milk, meat, eggs and poultry. Foods such as vegetables and fruit become contaminated via contact with manure in the soil. It is impossible to notice whether food is infected with salmonella as it tastes normal. Salmonella can be spread from person to person by poor hygiene.

Symptoms

  • Diarrhoea
  • Stomach cramps
  • Vomiting
  • Fever

Salmonella can be treated by drinking plenty of fluids as the symptoms often cause dehydration and the loss of important sugars and minerals from the body. In severe cases, salmonella can be treated with antibiotics.
