There have been no confirmed reports of health problems, but salmonellosis can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating a contaminated product. The illness usually lasts four to seven days. Most people recover without treatment, but older people, infants, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness.
