The type of salmonella usually associated with infections in humans is called Non-Typhoidal Salmonella. It is usually contracted by ingesting raw or undercooked eggs, or from sources such as:

  • Poultry, pork, and cattle, if the meat is prepared incorrectly or somehow becomes infected with the bacteria.
  • Infected eggs and milk, as well as egg products, when not prepared, handled, or refrigerated properly.
  • Reptiles such as turtles, lizards, and snakes, as they can carry the bacteria on their skin.
  • Pet rodents
  • Tainted fruits and vegetables
