Salmonella belong to the group of Enterobacteriaceae that are aerobic, gram-negative rods and approximately 1-3 μm × 0.5 μm in size [1, 2]. Currently there are approximately 2,400 pathogenic species of salmonella. Salmonella was first identified in 1880 by Eberth from the mesenteric nodes and spleen of a patient dying from typhoid fever [3, 4].
