For the game mechanic involving food, see Hunger.

Food Poisoning, referred to in-game as Hunger, is a Status Effect added in the Adventure Update. Food Poisoning is contracted when one eats raw chicken, pufferfish, or rotten flesh, with each object having a different chance of poisoning the player. Food Poisoning will last about thirty seconds, but it can easily deplete the player's hunger bar. Drinking milk will cure the player from Food Poisoning immediately which defeats the possible negative effects of it, but any other effects (good or bad) will also go away with it as well. Food Poisoning can be countered temporarily by moving as little as possible since movement is what drives hunger.

The Chance of Food Poisoning

  • If one gets Food Poisoning after eating Raw Flesh or Raw Chicken (unless they eat more than 1 or avoids being poisoned), the hunger bar will deplete by 1-2 hunger points.
