What you should do if you’ve eaten recalled food

With the number of food recalls on the rise, there is a big possibility of us eating such food items.   If you have identified that the product you have is a recalled one, the first step is to understand why it was recalled.

This is important as some food items would simply be recalled for packaging issues. If you realize that there is a health scare, then;

“Watch for gastric distress or diarrhea, fever, rash, hives, muscle aches, vomiting or confusion—and especially symptoms that last for more than 24 hours, as that can signal serious dehydration,”  says Alissa Rumsey, M.S., R.D., spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
