The name Salmonella comes from its discoverer, D.E.Salmon, not from the fish! While it can be found on many foods and animals (especially reptiles), it is most widely found associated with poultry (live birds, eggs and meat). Good hygiene, thorough cooking and keeping raw foods separate from cooked ones is the best way to avoid crossing paths with these bacteria. Gastroenteritis symptoms start between six and 72 hours after intake of the Salmonella typhimurium bacteria; this may include fever, headache, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. 

Giant Microbes make excellent teaching aids as they assist students to develop an understanding of biology while taking a fun, hands on approach.

Not for children under three years of age as parts may dislodge and become a choking hazard.

Salmonella is 150mm high, 60mm wide and 50mm thick, made of white medium pile polyester plush with red knitted cords, polyester filling and plastic eyes.
