Burger King, West Broad Street, Waynesboro, VA, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea Vomiting

Report Type: Food Poisoning

DESCRIPTION

I purchased my sandwich at 12:30 pm, since I chose the drive-thru I wasn't able to eat it for another 10 minutes. It was the Classic Chicken Sandwich that was dressed with Mayonnaise and Lettuce. After I ate I wasn't hungry enough to eat dinner. It just didn't settle right with me. At about 5:00 P.M. I began cramping severely and spent the remainder of my evening covering the toilet while vomiting. I was taken by ambulance to the hospital where they gave me something to settle my stomach and some medication to tie me over until the pharmacy was open the next day. I tried contacting the restaurant, however have been unsuccessful thus far. Read More

Punch Bowl Social Arlington, Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea Vomiting

Report Type: Food Poisoning

DESCRIPTION

My boyfriend and I went in for dinner and shared onion rings and a chicken quesadilla. Within a couple hours my boyfriend was shaking and throwing up. I got hit next and the two of us spent the night alternating throwing up in the bathroom. I was sick from 1am- 7am. I will spare the rest of the gory details, but it took us about two days to get our strength back and we considered going to the ER. Anyway, I called to let the restaurant know and spoke with one of the managers who apologized and informed me that someone else would be calling me to follow up. No follow up. Read More

What To Do If You Have Food Poisioning


If you got food poisoning it's important to report it. You should drink fluids to prevent dehydration, and avoid solid foods until the vomiting has passed. If you experience severe belly pain, dehydration, high fever, bloody diarrhea, or prolonged or bloody vomiting, it is recommended to seek medical care.

U.S. FDA warns consumers of Salmonella presence in dog food

If you have  A+ Answers Straight Beef Formula for Dogs from Lot 2018 20/08 20, federal health officials are telling you to throw it away in a secure container where other animals, including wildlife, cannot access it. The company that owns the brand has recalled the affected lot in Nebraska, but has not implemented a nationwide recall. Pet foods contaminated with pathogens such as Salmonella are of particular public health importance because they can affect both human and animal health. Pets can get sick from Salmonella, and may also be carriers of the bacteria and pass it onto their human companions without appearing to be ill, according to FDA. Read more...

Food poisoning linked to romaine in U.S. ends

Two clusters of people who ate romaine lettuce at restaurants and got food poisoning played a critical role in the U.S. federal government identifying a large outbreak of E. coli infections that now appears to be over. An investigation published on January 9 by the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicated that romaine lettuce from the Central Coastal growing regions of northern and central California was the likely source of the outbreak, and that ill people reported eating different types of romaine lettuce in several restaurants and at home. The public health alert was first announced a few days before Thanksgiving with a warning for consumers to stay away from all romaine lettuce while a probe was conducted to search for the source of the bacteria.
