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.

Salmonella can often cause a person to be sick for up to seven days, and most people recover without treatment. Those infected develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps between 12 and 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. Read more here...
