Norovirus infection and its symptoms

Posted on July 26, 2015 11:39 am under Defective Food Product

Norovirus infection is a highly contagious medical condition characterized by bouts of diarrhea, vomiting, and nausea. This condition can be acquired by ingesting water or food contaminated with norovirus-containing fecal matter. In most cases, signs and symptoms of norovirus are self limiting and may last for up to three days.

Other signs and symptoms of the disease include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Low-grade fever
  • Malaise

Although norovirus is self-limiting, individuals with weakened immune system may suffer from more serious complications, such as dehydration. If you have eaten a contaminated food prepared in an unsanitary way and have suffered from this disease, a lawyer at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® can look into your situation to see if it qualifies you to file a claim against party responsible.
