Salmonella

Salmonella is another bacterial infection that people contract by eating improperly handled food. Salmonella infection is usually caused by eating raw or undercooked meat, poultry or eggs.

Salmonella is also found in tuna and freezing the fish won’t get rid of the salmonella. Cooking does reduce the risk of salmonella as long as the contamination didn’t occur after your food was cooked. Salmonella symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and sometimes blood in the stool.
