Food Poisoning is a Status Effect added in the Adventure Update. Food Poisoning is contracted when eating either raw chicken or rotten flesh, with each object having a different chance of poisoning the player. Food poisoning will last thirty seconds but can easily deplete the player's hunger bar. Drinking milk can cure the player from food poisoning immediately, defeating the possible negative effects of it, but any other effects (good or bad) also go away with it. Food poisoning can be countered temporarily by moving as little as possible, as movement is what drives hunger.
The Chance of Food Poisoning
- If you get food poisoning after eating raw flesh/raw chicken (unless you eat more than 1 or avoid poisoning) the Hunger bar will deplete by 1-2 hunger points.
- There are different levels of hunger; one will deplete half of the hunger bar and then subside, and the other will continue to deplete the health bar until 1 hunger point remains.
