There is no vaccine to prevent salmonellosis.
- Since foods of animal origin may be contaminated with Salmonella, people should not eat raw or undercooked eggs, poultry, or meat.
- Poultry and meat, including hamburgers, should be well-cooked, not pink in the middle.
- Persons also should not consume raw or unpasteurized milk or other dairy products. Produce should be thoroughly washed before consuming.
