Salmonella Diagnosis

If you suspect that you have contracted Salmonella, or are experiencing Salmonella food poisoning symptoms, contact your healthcare professional. He or she can order a stool culture to confirm Salmonella infection. Let your doctor know if you have eaten or handled peaches, or any another product known to be contaminated with Salmonella. A blood or tissue sample may be required if doctors suspect that the infection has entered the blood stream.
