Delicious Food Can Be Deceiving.

Food is all around us. We love going out to eat, having food delivered, and trying new restaurants that are open in our area. Calabasas has some of the most amazing restaurants and farmer’s markets that provide fresh food for residents and visitors alike. Although the food we eat is usually safe and clean, there are many outbreaks of food positioning that happen around America more often than people think. 1 out of every 6 Americans that goes out to eat comes down with a case of food poisoning. If you or someone you care about has experienced food poisoning, you might qualify for financial compensation. Contact our experienced Calabasas food poisoning lawyers at Walch Law for help in creating a case and to find out if you are eligible for recovery.

What is Food Poisoning, And How did I get it?

Food poisoning is a “foodborne” illness that is caused by eating something that has been contaminated. Infectious organisms, toxins, viruses, bacteria, and parasites can contaminate food that we then ingest. This contamination can happen at any point when processing or producing food. We can get food poisoning from restaurants that had cross contamination, restaurants that did not prepare their food correctly, or from a grocery store that sold contaminated food. It is important to try and note what food made you sick and where the source from which the food came.

Symptoms to Look for With Food Poisoning

Food poisoning affects every person differently. Some cases can be extremely mild while others can cause serious problems and side-effects. If you feel like you have eaten something that has been contaminated, it is important to seek medical attention if your symptoms last. Symptoms to watch out for are,

  • High Fever
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dehydration
  • Diarrhea

If these any of these (or other) symptoms persist, you should seek medical attention immediately.

Common types of food poisoning are:

  • coli – this bacteria can be very harmful for young children or older adults. The bacteria E. coli can cause serious illnesses such as kidney failure. Contact a doctor immediately if you have severe or bloody diarrhea.
  • Staphylococcus aureus – also known as Staph. This bacterium can be transferred from unwashed hands to food. Although it is not usually harmful—in some cases—Staph can turn into a life-threatening infection. Staph symptoms can come on as quickly as 30 minutes after eating.
  • Salmonella – this particular poisoning is one of the most common types of food poisoning. Some symptoms include diarrhea, fever, chills, cramping, vomiting, and dehydration. This bacterium is passed from undercooked meat, raw produce, and unpasteurized milk or juice.
