What is Salmonella?
It takes only a small amount of Salmonella bacteria to cause food poisoning. It sets up home in your intestines and keeps you infectious, even after you've started feeling better.
It spreads by:
Touching or eating contaminated food - especially likely to be raw poultry or eggs.
Coming into contact with the faeces of infected people or animals.
The symptoms are:
Diarrhoea, fever and stomach cramps.
In babies, infants and the elderly, Salmonella can spread to the bloodstream and affect the internal organs.
How to avoid Salmonella:
Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, especially after handling raw poultry
Keep your kitchen hygienically clean, with products like Domestos Extended Germ-Kill and Domestos Bleach Spray.
Ill people shouldn’t prepare food for others and, since they can carry bacteria for many weeks after recovery, keep up good hygiene standards even when symptoms have gone.
Hygienically clean bathroom surfaces with Domestos Extended Germ-Kill and disinfect toilets with the Domestos Toilet Cleaning System. If someone has diarrhoea, disinfect the toilet every time they use it.
Disinfect cleaning cloths by soaking overnight in a dilute solution of Domestos Extended Germ-Kill, drying them thoroughly.
Handle dirty nappies with care. Put them in a nappy bag before putting them in a bin liner to stop bacteria from causing further harm. If you use a nappy bin, make sure you use a bleach product such as Domestos Bleach Spray to clean it after use.
