Bacon Food Poisoning


Even though bacon is salt-cured to help prevent soiling, it is still possible to get food poisoning from bacon. Eating undercooked bacon can cause illness, such as toxoplasmosis, trichinosis, and tapeworms. Some of the symptoms of bacon food poisoning can be nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and fever.
