Happy 4th of July! Don’t get sick!
July 4, 2019 6:51AM EDT
Here’s a not-so-notable fact about the 4th of July: more people get food poisoning today than any other day of the year… Janell Goodwin with the USDA says people think they know what made them sick, but that’s not always the case. Just know that symptoms off food poisoning take hours, if not days to surfac. One tip: don’t leave perishable food items out in the heat for hours at a time… Questions?: call the USDA’s Meat and Poultry Hotline at 888-M-P-HOTLINE.
