Sometimes, no matter what you do, foodborne illness happens, but it is important to recognize the signs and symptoms. Oftentimes, people think their illness was caused by their last meal, but in fact, most foodborne bacteria take about 1 to 3 days to make you ill.
If you get sick with foodborne illness, you might have:
- Flu-like Symptoms
- Stomach Cramps
Consult with your physician if you have any concerns or if your symptoms worsen and, as always, wash your hands frequently to prevent the spread of your illness. If you suspect you became ill from eating out, contact City-County Health Department so we can investigate and determine if any action needs to be taken.
