Salmonella in the United States

Within the U.S., the rate of salmonella was the second highest in South Dakota, totaling about 35.4 new cases per 100,000 population, as of 2018, only topped by Mississippi with 39.8 new cases per 100,000 population. In total, there were 16.7 cases of salmonellosis per every 100,000 population in the United States. Between 1991 and 2016, there were 3,796 illnesses due to salmonella linked to live poultry in the country as well as 6 deaths.

Salmonellosis, an infection caused by Salmonella, usually lasts between 4 to 7 days and generally patients recover without any treatment. Salmonella can be transferred from animal products to humans so the best preventative measures are to cook food such as poultry, ground beef, and eggs thoroughly. Cross-contamination of these food items should also be avoided. In very young and elderly patients, the bacteria may enter the bloodstream and require antibiotherapy to cure the patient. Salmonella can also lead to other illnesses such as typhoid fever, paratyphoid fever, and food poisoning. About 67.9 million U.S. dollars were donated for research and development on the Salmonella infection globally in 2015.
