What is Food Poisoning?
Food poisoning, also referred to as foodborne illness, is the result of eating contaminated, spoiled, or toxic food. Although it’s quite uncomfortable, food poisoning isn’t unusual. In fact, according to the CDC, one in six Americans will contract some form of food poisoning every year. Caused by bacteria, parasites, or viruses, anyone is at risk of falling victim to food poisoning, especially children, the elderly, pregnant women, and those with a compromised immune system. Symptoms can vary depending on the source of infection, but typically include at least three of the following:
- Abdominal cramps
- Diarrhea or vomiting
- Loss of appetite
- Mild fever
