Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses, according to Stop & Shop. Salmonella infections can be life-threatening, especially to those with weak immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. The most common manifestations of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within eight to 72 hours. Additional symptoms may be chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days.
Stop & Shop said it had received no reports of illnesses as of Monday.
