This series provides a colorful overview of what these yucky creatures are, how they work, what and why they do what they do. Salmonella bacteria lurk in raw eggs, chicken, and other common foods. If allowed to enter the human body, the bacteria multiply quickly and cause a variety of unpleasant diseases, some of which can result in death. In this book the life cycle and effects of this parasite are examined. Containment techniques are also discussed. Accelerated Reader: Reading Level 5.8, 0.5 Points.
