Salmonella is a variety of bacteria that can be very harmful to humans. Unfortunately, it is fairly common and easily spread between humans and other animals. It has been connected to the dangerous illness typhoid fever and a severe form of food poisoning called salmonellosis. One of the most common ways for people to catch it is through unhygienic food, highlighting the importance of care and education in commercial kitchens.
If you or a member of your family has been exposed to salmonella through another party’s careless behavior, you should not be the one held responsible for medical bills and related expenses. To learn about legal strategies for receiving fair compensation, call the Charleston food poisoning lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.
TYPHOID FEVER AND SALMONELLOSIS
Salmonella provokes certain reactions in the body that can create serious health problems. Depending on the specific kind of salmonella involved, patients can develop typhoid fever or salmonellosis. These conditions often share symptoms such as:
Nausea and vomiting
Diarrhea (which may be bloody when caused by salmonellosis)
A rose-colored rash (more common with salmonellosis)
Seeking medical treatment is always a good precaution to take when these symptoms are present, even if they seem relatively mild. If left untreated, these conditions can become severe and potentially even fatal.
You may want to speak with a Charleston salmonella exposure attorney if you have suffered from a preventable mistake like:
Use of raw eggs from infected fowl
Poorly cleaned, thawed, or prepared food
