What To Do If You Have Food Poisioning


If you got food poisoning it's important to report it. You should drink fluids to prevent dehydration, and avoid solid foods until the vomiting has passed. If you experience severe belly pain, dehydration, high fever, bloody diarrhea, or prolonged or bloody vomiting, it is recommended to seek medical care.
