Just wash your hands after handling them or cleaning their cage and you should be just fine.

I remember last year the CDC made a big todo about hedgehogs carrying salmonella and it's because they're exploding in popularity so people are buying them without fully understanding the sanitation needs.

I think it's more for parents buying pets for their kids because the kids don't necessarily understand that no, honey, you can't lick the turtle.
