There’s a reason your parents harped on you about those raw eggs in cookie dough when you were younger. A salmonella infection is extremely unpleasant. According to the CDC, those with an active infection can experience: 

  • Diarrhea, sometimes bloody
  • Fever
  • Stomach cramps
  • Vomiting
  • Headache 

Symptoms can start anywhere between six hours and six days after exposure and can persist up to a week. Children, elderly people and those with weakened immune systems are at risk for sometimes fatal infections. The recall notice explains

In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
