It is estimated that only every 10th infection is recognized as a salmonella infection. Salmonella can survive outside the human or animal organism for several weeks. The best protection against salmonella is to heat the food for about 10 minutes to at least 75°. In addition salmonella will die in an acidic medium (eg pickles) quickly.
