The symptoms of Yersinia enterocolitica food poisoning include abdominal pain, fever, vomiting, and diarrhea, which may be bloody. The abdominal pain is often right sided, which makes the presentation similar to that of appendicitis. The symptoms, which may last between one and three weeks, usually start between four days and a week following exposure to the contaminated food. Skin rash and joint pain may also be present, although these symptoms are much rarer.
