Can you get food poisoning from eating food cooked on a grill near meat if you are vegetarian for years? Sudden body aches like flu next day

Can you get food poisoning from eating food cooked on a grill near meat if you are vegetarian for years? Sudden body aches like flu next day

Hmmmm...?: If you are asking whether your food, touching meat on a grill, would make you sick, simply because you are a vegetarian, I'd have to say no. On the other hand, if several other people at your cookout got sick too, it could be food poisoning. Expect some vomiting and/or diarrhea. More likely, with your symptoms, the infection you've been exposed to is viral, not food-borne. Get rest and fluids! ...Read more

Can food poisoning feel like flu? Ate food from bowl lots of people touched, next few days body aches/fatigue. I think food was sitting for while too

Can food poisoning feel like flu? Ate food from bowl lots of people touched, next few days body aches/fatigue. I think food was sitting for while too

Doubt food poisoning: Food poisoning is not a likely cause of body aches and fatigue, unless you also have had nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea. The shared food with "lots of people" suggests there may have been several people around -- maybe a party? That's a situation very conducive to respiratory infections (colds, influenza, etc), more likely to cause "flu like" symptoms. Anyway, see a doctor if it continues. ...Read more

Take him to the Emergency Room for blood tests and abdominal X-rays or CT and to be seen by an experienced clinician for proper diagnosis and treatment.
