Salmonella infection has been a prevalent problem in the food industry for many years. This paper will cover a brief history of the infection, as well as the most common strains. With the infection revolving around bacteria, the role M Cells and Lymphatic tissues are major catalysts in the development once contracted. Located in various parts of the body for immunal response, M Cells are crucial in sustaining immunal support. Furthemore, this research will discuss why Salmonella infection is so highly contagious, as while only a few strains can actually be contracted for humans, the threat of infection is still high. In addition, this paper will discuss historical data regarding the infection, how outbreaks happened for large corporations, and how they were treated to prevent them from happening in the future. In addition, data regarding what are the major risk factors along with which types of consumables are the most affected will be analyzed.
