Stop & Shop says they haven’t received any reports of illness, but consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. They say salmonella infections can be life-threatening, especially to those with weak immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. According to the supermarket, the most common manifestations of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within eight to 72 hours, and additional symptoms may include chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days.
