If symptoms are severe, see a doctor
According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Salmonella disease manifests itself within a few days after infection with sudden onset diarrhea, headache and stomach pain, malaise and sometimes vomiting.
"There is often a mild fever," explains the RKI on its website.
According to the experts, the symptoms often last for several days and then subside.
“Infants, young children, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system are particularly at risk. They can have longer and more severe illnesses, ”writes the Federal Center for Health Education (BZgA) on its portal“ infektionsschutz.de ”.
“People who have eaten this food and develop severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical help and point out a possible Salmonella infection,” says “lebensmittelwarnung.de”.
But: "Preventing medical treatment without symptoms is not sensible." (Ad)
