Answer

Salmonellae may cause food-borne outbreaks, often in summer and fall. The child experiences abdominal cramps and nausea after an incubation period of 8-48 hours following ingestion of a contaminated source (food or water). The stools are watery and may contain blood. Fever is noted in most children.
