Turtles Can Cause Salmonella

CNN recently reported that small pet turtles have been spreading Salmonella, and that children five years old or younger are especially vulnerable to infection. I can attest to that. The only time I have been hospitalized in my life was when I contracted Salmonella from a small pet turtle when I was five. Look at, but don't touch, the little critters.
