Types of Food Poisoning

Millions of people suffer from food poisoning cases every year, with varying degrees of severity with each case. People become sick with food poisoning after they have ingested food or drink that is contaminated with some harmful bacteria. Additionally, failing to properly cook meat, store food, or wash produce can cause cases of food poisoning. While most people assume that restaurants are responsible for the majority of food poisoning cases, in reality, over 90% of food poisoning cases occurred at home. Regardless of how the food poisoning was acquired, the effects can be extremely uncomfortable and painful, and in rare cases, can lead to death.

Types of Food Poisoning

Food poisoning can have very serious symptoms, including nausea and vomiting, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, fever, headaches, and weakness. While food poisoning rarely results in death, death can happen if the case is severe enough or no action is taken to treat the sickness, such as in the case where a medical professional fails to correctly diagnose the illness. Some of the most common types of food poisoning include:

  • Salmonella
  • Botulism
  • E. coli
  • Shigella
  • Cholera
