How long would food poisoning from underdone chicken wings take to show up in a 2 1/2 year old toddler and what would symptoms be?
Had lunch with fried chicken, wings was slightly black burned. When I poop, my stool color was black. Is it caused by chicken? No any other symptom.

But if this is included as part of an overall sensible diet, it can aid in weight loss. ...Read more
