Travel Etiquette Dos and Don'ts: Avoid Food Poisoning

Ben Wiseman

How to Avoid Food Poisoning While Eating Adventurously

Do...

Take cues from locals. Long lines are a good sign, and high turnover means that food doesn’t sit out and spoil.

Snoop. Inspect prep stations for cleanliness. Raw foods should be stored separately; cold foods should be on ice.

Don’t...

Leave unprepared. Get a prescription for an antibiotic such as Zithromax, which can help with severe food poisoning.

Forget about the water. Even ice cubes may be suspect. Look for bottled water with the seal intact.
