Hi, thanks so much for your comment. The most common fish food poisonings are scombroid and ciguatera. Scombroid is caused by improperly handling of fish-producing histamine-releasing bacteria. Symptoms can occur as quickly as 15 minutes. Ciguatera is common with tropical and sub-tropical fish and typically causes hot-cold reversal.

Have a good afternoon!

My daughter, age 16, ate gluten-free Kraft mac and cheese around 9:30 pm and at 5:00 am, she was dizzy, shaking, nauseated and said she felt like she needed to vomit. She vomited at 5:50am and went 4x in 3 hrs. I researched and found this site... See More and checked the expiration date. It expired 01/2023 and I just purchased it last week. So flipping angry!!! We just found out she has a gluten sensitivity and now to find out the store is selling expired food!

Btw: I visited the store and spoke to a “manager”, who couldn’t have cared less and there are still expired packages on the shelves. Buyer beware and I’m sorry if you’re reading this too late :( | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Shaking, Dizziness

The Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service Public Health unit is managing a Hepatitis A case linked to an employee of the Gympie Returned and Services League of Australia (RSL). The ongoing investigation includes the Public Health Unit working with the RSL management, aiming to identify and... See More contact all potentially exposed individuals who face a high risk of developing Hepatitis A.

The call extends to anyone who visited the Gympie RSL from July 2023 onwards. The aim is for these individuals to keep a close eye on their own health and that of their family members, and to consult their General Practitioner for testing should they experience any Hepatitis A symptoms.

Hepatitis A is an acute viral infection that can spread from person to person via the faecal-oral route, essentially when contaminated matter is ingested. Initial symptoms may include fever, gastro, holistic aches and pains, nausea, lack of appetite, and abdominal discomfort. The earliest specific symptom usually is dark urine, followed within a few days by jaundice (yellow skin and eyes) and light-coloured bowel movement. From the moment of exposure to the virus, it typically takes an average of 4 weeks (between 2 and 7 weeks) to begin showing symptoms.

Preventative measures against spreading Hepatitis A are imperative, with high handwashing standards and good hygiene being key. Individuals who are ill are advised against attending work or childcare facilities, while vaccination against Hepatitis A also offers protection.

In case you experienced Hepatitis A symptoms, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve issues and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance.
