The Mayo Clinic defines the disease caused by salmonella as:

Salmonella infection (salmonellosis) is a common bacterial disease that affects the intestinal tract. Salmonella bacteria typically live in animal and human intestines and are shed through stool (feces). Humans become infected most frequently through contaminated water or food.

If you believe you have been exposed, there is normally no need to seek medical attention. The infection normally clears within a couple of days. However, if the infected person is an infant, young child, older adult or someone with a weakened immune system, call a health care provider immediately.
