Having two or more rounds of liquor is the main thing that comes to mind when one thinks of intoxication but consuming undercooked poultry could also result in a serious case of intoxication from the Staphylococcus bacteria.
This bacteria is commonly found on the skin, nose and throat of individuals with cold and sinus infection, but it is also rampant in untreated water, sewage and unpasteurized milk. Ham, chicken, and potatoes are commonly associated with Staphylococcus Intoxication.
The bacteria can only be killed by temperatures of 120˚F, so it is extremely imperative that meats and poultry reach their correct cooking temperature to eradicate all traces of the bacteria. The recommended cooking time for ham and poultry is 160˚F while potatoes should reach temperatures of 210˚F.
Undercooked foods will result in Staphylococcus Intoxication producing symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps and exhaustion. However, a reliable instant read meat thermometer is very useful in determining when food is perfect for consumption.
