One of the most devastating bacteria that can affect your food processing environment is salmonella. Salmonella is a foodborne bacterium, meaning that those who eat meat, poultry or eggs contaminated with Salmonella can contract it themselves.
Salmonella in one form or another is responsible for roughly one million cases of foodborne illness in the U.S. annually. Sufferers experience fever, cramps and diarrhea lasting from around four to seven days. Salmonella is usually not fatal when treated. However, when diarrhea is severe, extreme dehydration may result, which is quite dangerous. Additionally, if Salmonella is left untreated and allowed to spread through the bloodstream, it does have the potential to be fatal.
Furthermore, the very unpleasant symptoms of Salmonella poisoning could result in damage to your reputation and loss of customers. For the health of your consumers and the protection of your business, reliable Salmonella testing such as the microbiological test for Salmonella from Log10® labs is crucial.
