What are food poisoning symptoms?

Food Poisoning Symptoms

Food poisoning symptoms can depend on a lot of factors

Food poisoning symptoms may range from mild to severe and can differ significantly depending of the contaminant, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The most common symptoms of food poisoning are:

  • Upset stomach
  • Stomach cramps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever

After you consume a contaminated food or drink -- especially if it is a chemical contaminant -- you may show symptoms of poisoning immediately. With some biological contaminants, it may take hours or days before you develop symptoms of food poisoning. If you believe you are suffering from a foodborne illness, please report it to IWasPoisoned.com.

Common signs of food poisoning

Common signs of food poisoning are nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea. However, symptoms may differ among the different types of foodborne diseases. Symptoms can sometimes be severe and some foodborne illnesses can even be life-threatening. Anyone can get a foodborne illness, but people in these categories are more at risk of the severe or long-term impacts:

  • Pregnant women
  • Young children
  • Older adults
  • People with immune systems weakened from medical conditions, such as diabetes, HIV/AIDS, or from receiving chemotherapy or radiation treatment.

Many people with food poisoning get better without medical treatment, but people with severe symptoms should see their doctor.

Complications From Food Poisoning

Many cases of food poisoning result in a mild illness that lasts a few hours or several days. However some people need to be hospitalized and/or have illnesses that result in long-term health problems (insert: https://www.foodsafety.gov/poisoning/effects) or even death. Infections transmitted by food can result in chronic arthritis, brain and nerve damage, and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which causes kidney failure.

When to See a Doctor for Severe Food Poisoning

If you experience symptoms of food poisoning, such as diarrhea or vomiting, drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration, according to the CDC. See your doctor or healthcare provider if you have symptoms that are severe, including:

  • High fever (temperature over 101.5°F)
  • Blood in stools
  • Frequent vomiting that prevents keeping liquids down
  • Signs of dehydration, including a marked decrease in urination, a very dry mouth and throat, or feeling dizzy when standing up.
  • Diarrhea that lasts more than 3 days

Current Multistate Food Poisoning Outbreaks

Here is a list of current foodborne illness outbreaks.

When two or more people get the same illness from the same contaminated food or drink, the event is called a foodborne or food poisoning outbreak. Reporting illnesses to your local health department helps them identify potential outbreaks of foodborne disease. Public health officials investigate outbreaks to control them, so more people do not get sick in the outbreak, and to learn how to prevent similar outbreaks from happening in the future.

“Last night we ordered online at 5pm- got delivered at 5.28 - $45 meal. A rare treat. The 19.95 cheap as chips bucket and a double bacon stacker burger. When it came I sorted it out chips and nuggets for my YOUNG kids and BABY, chicken, burger and chips for my husband and chicken and chips for me. No... See Morew I opened the chicken got myself and it had all sh* pieces, the thick dry pieces, old you could tell it was old and dry, I ate a tiny bit of the skin and through it all in the bin and was mad. My husband ate his burger and a piece of chicken, which was EXTREMELY dry, and I said how was yours? He said really dry and s*t. The chickens old even in the burger. I threw out my chicken and raged about the price and how inedible it was. About an hour later at 6.30 he said his belly was sore, within another half an hour he was really sick, cold sweats, nausea, diarrhoea ect. I put him in bed with a heat pack on his stomach. He said it was definitely food poisoning as he’d had it twice beforehand over the years. This is his second time from this place. The next morning he still couldn’t keep food down or much fluids as his stomach wouldn’t accept it had a servere headache and temperature. Went to the doctor and confirmed good poisoning. I’m disgusted and furious, as my young children could of been seriously sick, my 12 month old baby could have died, my 4 year old and my 6 year old son who have low immune systems could have ended up in hospital. Because of pure laziness and neglect in the food department. Working with chicken it should never happen. And they should be very careful. I’m disappointed and very mad at the situation and how dangerous it is and how much more dangerous it could have been for my kids. Won’t be going back and I except to to be sorted . I’ve heard to many times of others getting sick from here and it’s just not on. Busy or not, cool fresh. See Less

I had to hurry to the toilet, to basically pee out of my butt. Around 5 am I puked up everything. I could see there was still the soft shell tortilla undigested in my vomit, even though I had eaten their food around 15 hours prior it was still undigested in my stomach. drank water, puked again, drank more water puked a third time, until it was clear. The diarrhea continued through the day. Now, it's the day after that and I do feel much better, but my body still aches all over and my bowls are painfully cramping. See Less
