The investigation will look into what caused the salmonella contamination and whether any other items were harmed as a result of the infection. In healthy people, the organism can cause diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, fever, and abdominal pain. Elderly or frail people, those with weakened immune systems, and young children, on the other hand, may suffer from severe and sometimes fatal infections.
