Salmonella-contaminated food typically does not exhibit any visible signs of spoilage in terms of appearance, smell, or taste. Anyone can contract a Salmonella infection, but individuals such as infants, children, seniors, and those with weakened immune systems are more susceptible to severe illness due to their vulnerable immune systems, as outlined by the CDC.
