This is from an Australian information source:
The bacterium Salmonella is a common cause of food-poisoning. There are more than 2000 different strains of Salmonella. Salmonella are found in the faeces of infected animals. A new species, Salmonella enteritidis, can infect the ovaries of chickens and contaminate the eggs inside the shells. Symptoms of salmonellosis, the disease caused by Salmonella poisoning, include stomach pain, diarrhoea, chills, fever or headache. Most people feel better within 3-5 days, but data from the United States suggest that two people die out of every 1000 reported cases of salmonellosis. Typhoid, a disease no longer common in Australia, is caused by a strain of Salmonella."
Unfortunately, my SIL was one of these statistics - she died of salmonella contracted through eating infected produce from a restaurant.....
