Acccording to the FSAI, people infected with Salmonella typically develop symptoms between 12 and 36 hours after infection, but this can range between 6 and 72 hours. The most common symptom is diarrhoea, which can sometimes be bloody.  Other symptoms may include fever, headache and abdominal cramps. The illness usually lasts between four and seven days.

Diarrhoea can occasionally be severe enough to require hospital admission.
