Food Poisoning

Food poisoning is caused by bacteria, bacterial toxin(s), or viruses. Symptoms appear abruptly soon after eating contaminated food, generally within 24 hours. In cases involving Salmonella and Campylobacter the incubation period may be longer. Treatment of patients is symptomatic, with the exception of botulism. Consider therapy again when the cause of food poisoning is known. The aim is to stop an epidemic and to disclose the cause.
