Symptoms associated with food poisoning include diarrhea, fever, stomach cramps, nausea, and vomiting. Salmonella, a bacterial infection linked to raw chicken consumption, can lead to hospitalization.

The investigations aim to determine whether the guests’ ailments stem from food consumed at United’s premises or if other factors contributed to their illnesses.
