He called Cigna Telehealth and they said wait 24 hours. By late evening the pain was so bad his wife called 911 and he admitted to Jersey City Medical Center ER and after various blood tests and catscan they operated Friday morning at 7 am to remove his appendix (luckily it had not burst). He was released late last night and is home trying to recuperate and has to self quarantine as the Hospital also had covid patients. This location has had reports before and should be checked to see if they are using old meat or it has e-coli. I plan to also report this to my local councilperson and anyone else I can to ensure this is followed up

Meat Food Poisoning

 

You can get food poisoning from all types of meat. Chicken and beef are the most consumed meats and are a high risk of causing food poisoning. Meat contamination can occur during processing, manufacturing, or preparation if mishandled. Common bacteria contamination includes salmonella and E.coli.
