Food Poisoning

Each year more than 30 million Americans suffer from food poisoning, which can be especially hazardous for babies and young children. If two or more members of your family experience cramps, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea after eating the same food, food poisoning is the likely cause. To reduce the chance of food poisoning, wash hands with hot water and soap both before and while preparing meals, wash dish towels and sponges, and refrigerate all food immediately after a meal.
