Food poisoning is often caused by
bacteria or viruses that were allowed to
contaminate the food. Contamination may be
caused by unsanitary practices, improper
packaging or incorrect storage methods. Many
times, food poisoning and food-borne illnesses surface only after a
group of people are hospitalized after
eating the same food product.
There are many types of bacteria and
viruses that cause food-related sicknesses.
Below are the most common forms.
- Salmonella – is
mostly present in undercooked foods such
as eggs, chicken, seafood and dairy
products. It is one of the most common
food-borne illnesses and its symptoms
usually include nausea, vomiting,
diarrhea and headaches.
- E. coli – comes
from raw or undercooked hamburger,
unpasteurized milk or juice,
contaminated well water, and
contaminated produce. E. coli can cause
diarrhea, kidney failure and death.
- Listeria – is found
in raw milk, meat, poultry, cheese and
vegetables. It can be as mild as
flu-like symptoms, or it can cause
meningitis and septicemia.
- Botulism – symptoms
include double vision, blurred vision,
drooping eyelids, slurred speech,
difficulty swallowing, dry mouth and
muscle weakness. Infants with botulism
appear lethargic, feed poorly, are
constipated, and have a weak cry and
poor muscle tone. If untreated, these
symptoms may progress to cause paralysis
of the arms, legs, trunk and respiratory
- Norwalk Virus – is
one of the most common forms of food
poisoning in adults. The virus is an
intestinal illness and is spread when
people come into contact with
stool-contaminated food or water due to
unsanitary conditions. It is also spread
through shellfish, especially raw
- Hepatitis A – is an
acute liver disease that is contracted
by the ingestion of small amounts of
fecal matter which may be present in
food or drink due to unsanitary
conditions. Symptoms include fever,
jaundice, loss of appetite and
tiredness. Hepatitis A can lead to liver
problems and death.
- Rotavirus – causes
vomiting, diarrhea and fever. It is
commonly passed on through food that has
been contaminated with fecal matter.
While some of these diseases do not
directly cause death, their secondary
complications, such as dehydration, can be fatal. Young
children, the elderly, and people who with impaired immune systems are
hit hardest by food poisoning.
If you or someone you love has been
gotten sick due to negligence of
food handlers, manufacturers or growers,
please do not hesitate to take legal action.

acting quickly, you're also helping to shine
