    You have to worry about salmonella in any raw animal product, including meat, milk, dairy products, eggs, fruits, and vegetables, in addition to just poultry. This is because the salmonella bacteria lives in the intestinal tracks of humans, animals, and birds, and can be transmitted through feces contamination. The bacteria can also be spread through contact with infected animal products (the juices from the meat) or if someone handles infected food and does not wash their hands. The main concern are raw products from any animal, and the bacteria is best avoided by cooking all food sufficiently and keeping all food and handling surfaces clean.
