Additional Information


Salmonella bacteria is the cause of the foodborne illness salmonellosis. There are many different groups, called serotypes, of Salmonella. The serotypes differ in how often they cause illness in people and in what types of food and other places they contaminate. Some serotypes can cause severe illness in people, while other cause milder illness.
