FACTS: Discovered in 1885 by American veterinarian Daniel E. Salmon, Salmonella bacteria are among the leading causes of food poisoning in the world. Salmonella are very common and can be found on many foods. Pets can be carriers as well, particularly reptiles. However, poultry and eggs are the most favoured habitats for salmonella- and should be cooked thoroughly. So don't be bird-brained: wash your hands and eat cooked food, or you may swallow Salmonella - and get egg on your face.
