In most cases of food poisoning, the food is contaminated by bacteria, such as salmonella or Escherichia coli (E. coli), or a virus, such as norovirus.
The symptoms of food poisoning usually begin within one to two days of eating contaminated food.
The main symptoms of food poisoning include:
-Feeling sick (nausea)
-Diarrhoea, which may contain blood or mucus
-Stomach cramps and abdominal pain
-A lack of energy and weakness
-Loss of appetite
