    Salmonella poisoning itself is not contagious from person to person. It’s typically caused by consuming food or water contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. However, if someone is infected with Salmonella and doesn’t practice proper hygiene, they can spread the bacteria to others through fecal-oral transmission. This means that if someone doesn’t wash their hands properly after using the bathroom or handling contaminated food, they can inadvertently spread Salmonella to others by touching surfaces or preparing food. Therefore, while Salmonella poisoning is not directly contagious, the bacteria can be transmitted indirectly through poor hygiene practices.
