“Virginia Ortiz had no idea that the two African dwarf frogs in her great aunt's aquarium could carry Salmonella bacteria, a germ that can cause serious illness in people. If she had, she would not have stored her 4-month-old baby's bottles next to the kitchen sink where the water frogs' aquarium was cleaned. Virginia knew something was seriously wrong when her usually lively baby, Willie, could not hold his head up and was "pooping red stuff." She rushed Willie to the hospital, a decision she would later find out probably saved his life.”
