Salmonella infection is a common bacterial condition that affects the intestinal tract. Salmonella bacteria typically live in animal and human intestines and are shed through faeces. Humans are most frequently infected through contaminated water or food.

Some people with salmonella infection exhibit no symptoms, but most people develop diarrhoea, fever and stomach cramps within 8 to 72 hours after consuming salmonella-contaminated food or water.

Most people recover within a few days to a week without needing any specific treatment.

Note, however, that in some cases diarrhoea can cause severe dehydration that does require medical attention. Life-threatening complications may develop if the infection spreads beyond the intestines.

Of course, the risk of contracting a salmonella infection is higher in countries that lack clean drinking water and proper sewage disposal.

Salmonella infection commonly stems from eating raw or undercooked meat that is contaminated. Salmonella is also found in poultry, eggs or egg products, and in unpasteurized milk.

The incubation period for salmonella infection to display symptoms can be from 6 hours to 6 days.

People who have salmonella infection often think they have a stomach bug because of the symptoms of diarrhoea, stomach cramps, nausea, fever and vomiting. In more severe cases, there may be blood apparent in faeces.

The symptoms of salmonella infection generally last a few days to a week, but diarrhoea may last up to 10 days. Note also that In some cases it may take months before bowel function returns to normal. Learn more about food poisoning here.

If you display any of these symptoms after eating Lidl’s salami, you should see a medical professional. Most people don’t require medical attention for salmonella infection, though, because it clears up on its own within a few days.

However, if the symptoms last more than a few days and are associated with fever or blood in faeces, immediate medical attention should be sought. Similarly, if the diarrhoea appears to be causing dehydration, with signs such as infrequent urination, dark urine, or having a dry mouth and tongue, medical advice should be sought.
