In brief: Not necessarily

We all know to avoid rotten or odd-looking food.
But food can look totally normal and still harbor salmonella if it wasn't cooked or stored properly.

In brief: No

But it may taste a bit off.
Usually, there is no observed difference in this type of bacterial contamination.
