Food poisoning happens more often than you may think. For example, “Brennan’s Cellars,” a cheese company in Wisconsin, recently recalled some of its products due to a possible listeria contamination.
One of the best ways you can prepare for a possible food poisoning occurrence is by making sure your Wisconsin medical insurance plan is protecting you and your family.
Symptoms of food poisoning, including fever and vomiting, can range from mild to severe and sometimes require emergency hospitalization. A Wisconsin medical insurance policy can provide coverage for doctor visits, prescriptions, medical testing and more, all of which may need to be done if you encounter food poisoning.
Food contamination can happen at any time during the food production process and it is important that you stay aware of any food recalls announced by the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA even has a link on their Web site to download a Product Recall App, which informs you of recalls from the FDA and other government agencies.
