Foodborne Illness

Foodborne illnesses can be caused by microbes two different ways: poisoning and infection. Food poisoning results from ingesting a bacterial exotoxin. Onset of food poisoning symptoms is rapid. Food infection results from ingesting a food contaminated with bacteria. Onset of food infection symptoms is relatively slow (sometimes several days).
