All About Salmonella (Salmonella Typhimurium)
Which came first: the chicken, or the egg -- or the Salmonella bacteria? A comic gift idea for all of the chefs and foodies in your life! Reminder to practice safe food handling. A useful educational tool for food preparation experts.
FACTS: Discovered in 1885 by American veterinarian Daniel E. Salmon, Salmonella bacteria are among the leading causes of food poisoning in the world.
Salmonella is very common and can be found in many foods. Pets can be carriers as well, particularly reptiles. However, poultry and eggs are among the most favored habitats for Salmonella – and should indeed be handled with care.
So how do Salmonella bacteria cross the microbial road to get to their next victim? Caesar-salad dressing, homemade eggnog, ice cream, mayonnaise, hollandaise sauce, and frostings are common pathways, not to mention undercooked chicken. Unsanitary kitchen-practices, such as neglecting to thoroughly wash hands, utensils, and surfaces that have been in touch with raw food, are often responsible as well.
Salmonella infections typically occur after an incubation period of 6 to 48 hours, last less than a week, and require no medical treatment. However, in severe cases – most commonly in the young, old, and those with impaired immune systems – dehydration from excessive egestion calls for hospitalization. (And if the bacteria escape the confines of the gastrointestinal-tract and infect the blood-stream, immediate hospitalization is mandated.)
Though long-term effects are rare, it can sometimes take months before gastro-intestinal harmony is fully restored. (In very rare instances, arthritic-pains known as Reiter's syndrome can also develop.) So don't be bird-brained: wash your hands and eat cooked food, or you may swallow Salmonella – and get egg on your face.

The perfect addition to my collections. Thank you knick knack
I was delighted when I found the World's Smallest GI Joes. My son has a complete set of figures and mobiles. I was wondering how I could add to his collection. I saw these at Knick Knack and was thrilled. I was even more thrilled when I saw the prices. I immediately ordered one of each. They arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I look forward to shopping here again.
Very cute little Care Bears! They make me so happy. This is a fantastic price for all four, and they shipped pretty quickly! If you put the pastel and multicolored bears together, they'd look like a mini version of my childhood teddy bear.
Super well made. Fast shipping. Safeky packaged. Very happy. Will return to buy more. :)
The kids are the perfect gift for family and friends. My only suggestion is to try and protect them by individually wrapping each when shipping multiple kids. I’m really pleased with the quality.
I love it!!
Item arrived quickly with no problems!
I wanted a dreamhouse for my 70s dollhouse and this is perfect. It was delivered very quickly and went directly into a 1/12 playroom. The best part is the tiny Ken though. He is a wonderful addition to the dollhouse.
I love this mini Barbie dream house! I got the real thing for Christmas when I was a kid. It was well played with and it’s nice to have a mini version to display as the real dream house just wouldn’t look quite right on my desk at work. (🤔😊) Thanks for such a creative way for adults to tap into their fondest childhood memories & be able to enjoy a mini version. Super cool idea!
A great seller to work with, price was perfect and fast to shop out. My item was exactly as advertised.
Just as described. They’re adorable
