Shigellosis Symptoms

Shigellosis is a foodborne illness caused by a group of bacteria called Shigella. The illness is characterized by diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting, fever, and stomach cramps, beginning anywhere from 12 hours to 4 days after eating food contaminated with Shigella. Shigella is transmitted from person to person via fecal to oral contact. In the case of Shigella foodborne illness, contaminated food, which may look, smell, and taste normal, is consumed.
