I read somewhere that celery is one of the salad ingredients that “hides” nasty bacteria and we should properly wash it – properly – not just hold it under the tap before eating.
Well raw celery is a common addition to the Furlong luncheon. We sort of point it in the direction of the tap. But after the last two days, I am going to wash it properly.
It’s the only thing I ate that could have induced such awful stomach upset in me.
- feeling sick (nausea)
- diarrhoea, which may contain blood or mucus
- stomach cramps and abdominal (tummy) pain
- a lack of energy and weakness
- loss of appetite
- a high temperature (fever)
- aching muscles
In most cases, these symptoms will pass in a few days and you will make a full recovery.
Well, I hope so!
