Food poisoning generally results from consuming food or drink contaminated with pathogenic bacteria, viruses, or toxins. The illness often produces symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea, or fever. The symptoms are often the same as for gastro-type illnesses caused by other sources (e.g., other people carrying the bacteria or unhygienic surfaces). This usually makes it hard to tell illness caused by food from the other sources of illness. Foodborne illness can occur from any fresh or processed foods consumed in a range of settings, such as homes, restaurants, large catering establishments, schools, and institutions. Most cases of foodborne illness can be avoided through good hygiene and good food handling practices. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
