Signs and symptoms of food poisoning

Posted on November 10, 2014 4:54 pm under Defective Food Product

Food poisoning, sometimes referred to as foodborne disease, is a condition that affects approximately one in every six individuals in the country. This medical emergency is oftentimes a consequence of poor food handling. Unfortunately, in some cases, food poisoning can be a result of a food manufacturer’s failure to abide by measures that would ensure food quality and safety.

Although signs and symptoms of food poisoning depend mainly on the type of contamination, there are general manifestations associated with this medical situation. You should contact a health care professional if you experience any of the following:

  • Weakness
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Headache
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Mild fever
