Who’s at risk of salmonella infection?

Posted on May 7, 2015 11:25 am under Defective Food Product

Typically, salmonella infection is a self-limiting medical condition that usually lasts for several days up to a week. Healthy people who develop symptoms of salmonella infection usually recover between 4 and 7 days.

However, salmonella infection can be extremely dangerous for people with the following conditions:

  • Weakened immune system caused by chronic medical conditions, such as malaria, AIDS, and sickle cell disease
  • Use of immunosuppressive drugs, such as corticosteroids
  • Use of antacids, which lowers your stomach’s acidity
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which could damage the lining of your intestines
  • Use of antibiotic, which could kill salmonella-fighting “good bacteria”

Unfortunately, several cases of salmonella infection have been linked to unsanitary practices in food processing, packing, and distribution.
