RCB Alert

The Government Security Center sent an alert to some residents of the Podkarpackie Voivodeship. The information was also published on the X platform. “Attention! Do not eat meat from the market in Nowa Dęba (Tarnobrzeg district). High risk of life-threatening poisoning. If you have symptoms of poisoning – call 112,” we read.

It was reported that the RCB alert was sent to recipients in part of the Podkarpackie Voivodeship. These are the following counties: Stalowa Wola, Niżański, Mielec, Tarnobrzeg and Kolbuszów.

The Government Center for Security appeals: “If you have recently eaten meat from an unverified source, you experience disturbing health symptoms and you suspect that the food may have been poisoned – contact your doctor immediately or call 112!”

Various symptoms of poisoning

RCB reminds that the symptoms of poisoning may vary depending on the type of poisoning and how badly the meat was poisoned.

This includes: nausea – these are one of the most common symptoms of food poisoning (a person may experience stomach discomfort and a feeling of reluctance to eat), vomiting and diarrhea – this is the body’s natural way of getting rid of toxins (they may occur both after eating poisoned meat and during digestion), abdominal pain – sharp or dull (may be localized differently and intensify with the intensity of poisoning), fever – in case of severe food poisoning, fever may occur, which is the body’s reaction to the presence of toxins, general weakness – food poisoning may lead to general weakness, feelings of fatigue and apathy.
