My mom had food poisoning on friday it was confirmed by a doctor.we know what food made her sick. The food was sitting in the fridge till Sunday. Than it was thrown out. Now its Thursday and im sick.Is this because the food was sitting in the fridge and it could have possibly contaminated other food? or could I just touch a contaminated surface like some thing in the bathroom than touch my face than i'll be sick too?
Should i throw out everything in the fridge? and evrything in the bathroom?
Please let me know what you think. Thank you

is your fridge cold enough to keep food from spoiling?

it is possible that you both had a stomach virus that was not caused by food poisoning?

anyway, throw all food out.
