    Seaweed salad, like other fresh produce, could be the source of food poisoning. In 2020, over 3,000 students in Japan fell ill after consuming seaweed salad that was contaminated with E.coli. Symptoms of an E.coli infection start 2-7 days after the consumption, and are characterized by diarrhea and abdominal cramps.
