Health Tip: Reducing Risk of Salmonella

(HealthDay News) -- From fruits and vegetables to chicken and pork, salmonella bacteria can make their way to a variety of foods. However, because contaminated foods often look and smell normal, detection can be difficult.

To help prevent Salmonella infection, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests:

  • Wash your hands after contact with animals.

  • Refrigerate perishables, prepared foods and leftovers within 2 hours.

  • Don't eat uncooked eggs and poultry.
