Possible symptoms of Salmonella infection

Possible symptoms of Salmonella infection are fever, stomach cramps and diarrhoea. These symptoms usually occur within 12 to 48 hours after the infection.

The symptoms usually last 4 to 7 days and most people recover without specific treatment. Young children, pregnant women, people with decreased immunity and elderly people are risk groups. For them, the symptoms may be more serious and result in hospitalisation.

 

If you have eaten this pita meat and have these symptoms, consult your family doctor.
