Arugula Food Poisoning

Updated

Arugula and other leafy greens are one of the leading causes of food poisoning. According to the CDC, from 1998 to 2008 they caused 262 outbreaks involving 8,836 cases of illness. Arugula food poisoning can start when the greens become contaminated by dirty growing conditions or at packaging plants.

I ended up in the bathroom with excruciating pains in my abdomen. I was dripping wet from sweat and almost past out twice from the pain. I do not have anything left inside of me to defecate, but I am passing blood. It's not too much, about a teaspoon per visit to the bathroom. I had cereal this morning with rice milk, no coffee as I usually have. I feel it is getting better, but was concerned about the blood. Sorry, didn't keep the receipt. My husband has the charge on his cc statement.
