What to do if you have food poisoning?
When you are trying to figure out what to do after food poisoning, according to the Mayo Clinic you should help keep yourself comfortable and prevent dehydration while you recover. In addition, try the following: Let your stomach settle. Stop eating and drinking for a few hours. Try sucking on ice chips or taking small sips of water. You might also try drinking clear soda, clear broth or non-caffeinated sports drinks, such as Gatorade. You're getting enough fluid when you're urinating normally and your urine is clear and not dark. Ease back into eating. Gradually begin to eat bland, low-fat, easy-to-digest foods, such as soda crackers, toast, gelatin, bananas and rice. Stop eating if your nausea returns. Avoid certain foods and substances until you're feeling better. These include dairy products, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, and fatty or highly seasoned foods. Rest. The illness and dehydration can weaken and tire you.

Current Multistate Food Poisoning 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. Here is a list of current multistate foodborne illness outbreaks.

“I ate two double doubles. Within less than 3 min of finishes I got sever stomach aches. I immediately went to the toilet and experienced more pain. I then had a strong urge to vomit. My body started to sweat and now I’m still light headed. ”
“Water - Not sure if it’s the gallon of water I bought from here but most likely. The cap seemed opened already, it just came off without separating from the other piece that usually gets left on the bottle. I didn’t think anything of it until a few minutes after... dinner when I noticed my daughter’s face/cheeks being red. Then I looked in the mirror and my face/cheeks was also flushed red. This only happens to me with alcohol. I don’t drink alcohol because I’m allergic to it. The symptoms I’m experiencing right now is the same symptoms as when I take one sip of alcohol. I get a headache and my face feels warm and my heart starts beating fast. I took my blood pressure and it was high. My heart is also palpitating. My daughter’s blood pressure is also elevated and her heartbeat keeps going up and down from 77 to 125, according to her Apple Watch. This is very weird. ”
“We ate at around 630 pm last tonight. Our order was all messed up and i called the manager. About an hour after we ate our food all of us were puking and pooping all at the same time with severe stomach pains. Its awful. Im laying in bed still... so nauseous. This is the 3rd time this has happened to us. Never again. Never again. ”
“Ordered a small chili with cheese, onions and sour cream & large fries with ketchup....the fries were not really even hot, more like warm at best, seemed old too, some were hard and stale tasting, some mushy and limp....not sure if it was the chili or fries or both but... I have heartburn so bad I'm considering going to urgent care at our local hospital....this coupled with severe gas/bloating and stomach cramps, and vomiting the most noxious, acidic like volatile liquid I could imagine exists on planet earth, feels like I've got a belly full of battery acid that wont digest and wont fully expel by vomiting it out.....BEWARE!!!!! ”
“I ate here with 2 other family members. I got beef tacos, and they got burrito bowls. Ingredients were very similar, typical selections (salsa, lettuce, beans, etc). Exactly 1.5 days later, within a 2 hour span, all three of us fell ill with same symptoms. They both vomited several times.... I had several bouts of diarrhea, severe weakness and nausea, and debilitating flu-like symptoms that lasted for 2 entire days. 4 days later and I finally feel normal again. I will never eat there anywhere again. ”
“At first we thought we just had a bad case of the stomach flu that just happened to coincide with the weather. However, we recently went back for more tacos and got sick AGAIN. I have a family of 5 and one of them is a toddler. It is extremely... sad to see a 17 month old suffer such bad vomiting and diaherra. I just had to report this to save other families. These tacos are delicious and it's sad that this has occurred on both occasions. I will NEVER be back and I urge you to take caution when ordering tacos from this gas station again. ”
“My mom and I had a late lunch there Saturday, 1/4/2020. We both ordered the exact same thing--chicken tortilla soup and Alice Springs Chicken Quesadilla with honey mustard sauce. We enjoyed our meal, our server, and the ambiance, and my mom was excited to return with her friends. We returned... to her home about 30-45 minutes after we finished eating. Shortly thereafter I was hit with a bout of diarrhea--barely made it to the bathroom in time. Not soon after, my mom had an even worse attack in addition to a headache. This went on for both of us for the next few hours, followed by awful gas. No nausea and vomiting, thank goodness. The only thing I can chalk up this coincidental mutual diarrhea attack to was that we both ate the same thing at the Brookfield Outback, and it happened pretty quickly after we ate there. We are both fine today. We will not risk going back there. ”
