    Causes of Food-borne Illnesses

    Almost all cases of food poisoning come from food that has been contaminated by a germ. Some of the most common germs are Salmonella, E.Coli 0157:H7, norovirus, and listeria. Food-borne illnesses may occur after the consumption of:

    • Dairy products past expiration date
    • Meats that are undercooked or raw
    • Food made with dirty utensils or dirty hands
    • Undercooked eggs

    The most common symptoms of food poisoning are similar to those of the flu. Victims may experience nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and vomiting. While food poisoning typically passes after a couple of days, victims should get medical attention if it does not improve or gets worse.
