Food recalls are something we have seen time and time again in the mass production era of food sales.

Whether it be contamination, manufacturing issues, or any other mistake made, some food hits the shelf as a danger to your health.

What is Salmonella?

Salmonella is a bacterial disease that attacks your intestines, and is the most common form of food poisoning in the United States. While some who contract the disease have no symptoms, the most common are diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach cramps.

The disease is mostly contracted by eating undercooked food, but it can also be spread in contaminated water. Luckily, those who have contracted Salmonella will usually recover within a few days with no specific medication, so if you find yourself with Salmonella poisoning, you'll j have to wait it out.
