Previous outbreaks of salmonella bareilly have been linked to bean sprouts, which are grown in warm, damp conditions.
The most common symptoms of salmonella are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight to 72 hours of eating the contaminated food. The illness can be severe or even life-threatening for infants, older people, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems.
The FDA recommended that people be cautious about eating raw seafood, inquire about the source and "when in doubt, don't eat it."
