Both: It's technically an infection but it's also referred to as a food poisoning. It is sometimes treated with an antibiotic.

Salmonella infection: Salmonella bacteria can infect food such as uncooked or partially cooked chicken or eggs. This food if eaten can cause "food poisoning" and considerable misery in humans, with fever, vomiting and diarrhea. It can be particularly dangerous for individuals with sickle cell anemia.
