In Egypt on December 14, 2011 by teargasid

Help identify the cause of the food poisoning at #OccupyCabinet, Egypt December 14th 2011. Photo by Abdel Rahman Hussein

Information given so far.

  • Sick almost immediately/ after a few hours / after five hours
  • Casues nausea
  • Probably from sandwiches (hawawshi) brought there by an unknown woman.
  • Sandwiches were reported to contain lamb meat

Now I have narowed it down to two possible suspects (given it in fact is food poisoning) based on incubation time(time from eating til you get sick).

Bacillus Cereus (incubation time 1-6 hours)

Symptoms: nausea, throwing up

Staphylococcus Aureus (incubation time 1-8 hours)

Symptoms: nausea, stomach pain, throwing up, diarrhea, fever.

* Heavy metal – Cadmium (incubation time: 1 – 60 minutes)

Symptoms: nausea, stomach pain, throwing up, diarrhea.

If you have any more info, or can confirm any information in this post, please leave a comment or tweet at @tg_id
