Salmonella enterica bacterium could cause a type of food poisoning called Salmonellosis. Symptoms of the condition include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever which may occur from 12 to 72 hours after ingestion of Salmonella.
Salmonellosis could last for four to seven days but most patients recover without medications or treatments as per WebMd. However, diarrhea from the infection could lead to dehydration which would require further medical attention.
