  • I saw something online once that you should eat something sour, like lemon juice if you think you ate raw chicken. Apparently it was suppose to raise the pH levels in your stomach which kill bacteria faster.... I'd probably try it ... won't hurt anything lol

  • I would think he would be ok but just for peace of mind call the on call doctor and talk to them. They should be able to tell you if he needs to be seen or not. Hope he's ok

  • I don't think he needs to go to the ER. He should be fine, but if it makes you feel better you can call the ER and talk to a nurse and see what they say. I think he is fine tho.
