Salmonellosis is an infection with bacteria called Salmonella, which generally affects the intestines (bowels/gut) and occasionally the bloodstream. It is one of the more common causes of diarrheal illness with several thousand cases occurring in New York State each year. Most cases occur in the summer months and can be seen as single cases or outbreaks (when two or more people become ill from the same source).
