Symptoms Of Food Poisoning

Fighting Food Poisoning Cases Relentlessly to See that Victims Get Justice

Most of us have experienced some kind of food poisoning in our lives. Usually the illness is mild, but sometimes it can be deadly.

Symptoms can include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramps

The symptoms usually occur within 48 hours of consuming a contaminated food product or drink. You should contact a health care provider for a diarrheal illness if it is accompanied by:

  • High fever (temperature over 101.5 F)
  • Blood in the stools
  • Prolonged vomiting that prevents keeping liquids down. This can lead to dehydration
  • Signs of dehydration, including a decrease in urination, a dry mouth or throat and feeling dizzy when standing up
  • Diarrheal illness that lasts more than three days
