In brief: Common infection
Salmonella is present in many animals, and any raw food of animal origin, such as meat, poultry, milk and dairy products, eggs, or seafood may carry salmonella bacteria.
The bacteria can survive to cause illness if susceptible foods are not cooked to a safe minimum internal temperature as measured with a food thermometer.
