  • To protect yourself, avoid raw foods such as salad, uncooked vegetables, and fruit (unless you peel it yourself), unpasteurized milk or milk products, raw meat, and shellfish, and be sure to drink bottled water or other beverages with a label on it.
  • If diarrhea is severe or bloody, lasts for several days, or is accompanied by fever or chills, you should seek medical attention.
