What you should do

 

Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.

Common symptoms of Staphylococcus poisoning are nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping and fever. In severe cases of illness, headache, muscle cramping and changes in blood pressure and pulse rate may occur.
