Unknown Food Can is a food item in DayZ. All Unknown Food Cans contain Chemical Poisoning agents which can cause the survivor to become ill when consumed in large quantities in a short period of time. Having a good immune system or using any medication, does not lessen the chances of getting sick. But since the poison agents are absorbed from the unknown food can more slowly, than from for example Gasoline, and because the illness is removed its own, the cans are fairly safe to eat in small portions at the time[1]. However, it is removed from the body slower than the stomach digests it, so an empty stomach cannot be used to determine how much is safe, unlike other illnesses.

  1. An easy method that can be used to consume the food somewhat safely: If you take 3 bites, and then wait until the arrows go down on your food meter, you can take 3 more bites without suffering ill effects.
