    Salmonella can indeed pass through breast milk, but it’s relatively rare. When a nursing mother is infected with Salmonella, the bacteria can potentially be transmitted to her infant through breast milk. However, breastfeeding is generally still recommended even if the mother has Salmonella, as the benefits of breastfeeding typically outweigh the risks of transmission. In most cases, proper hygiene measures and treatment of the mother can help reduce the risk of Salmonella transmission to the infant. It’s essential for mothers who suspect they have a Salmonella infection to seek medical advice and follow the guidance of healthcare professionals regarding breastfeeding and treatment.
