I have eaten 10 mouthfuls of chicken cut up in an enchilada which were pink but slightly warm. Will I definitely get sick?

You can anticipate sudden onset of nausea, cramping and diarrhoea 6 to 72 hours after eating salmonella infected food. Campylobacter infection may take two to 5 days to become apparent. This will normally include diarrhoea, fever, stomach cramps, nausea and vomiting.

If you get sick, seek medical advice and practice good hygiene (wash hands dont cook for others). It may be worthwhile thinking about what you eat for the next little while as it may be comming back the way you sent it in or it could be fired out the other end with great force.

The most you can do now is see what happens. But at least you know what you may be in for and can now prepare.

Just because bacteria is present on the meat, doesn't mean that your body can't fight it off, if it is a smaller amount.

Not necessarily but you are at risk of food poisoning.

If you get ill have a shower and go to hospital and submit a stool sample.

Do not go to work and do not prepare food for anyone else until you are better.
