On Wednesday 1/16 I purchased three prepared foods, hot salsa, mild guacamole and velveeta cheese sauce all sold together for $10 and displayed at the south entrance to Safeway. When I arrived home I immediately made an entree of nachos and baked them first to brown the cheese the topped and ate with salsa and guacamole. That was at 8pm. At around 4-5 am I awoke with a nauseous feeling and cramps so I ran to the bathroom to a significant amount of diarrhea, afterward I went back to bed and again had an attack around 6am and this time to both diarrhea and severe vomiting which was all chips and dips. This went on for a while and then stopped. Feeling not as awful since the second bout around 7:30am I have stayed in bed all day and at 4pm experience more diarrhea and still feel nauseous Read More

I purchased a juice cleanse (cleanse 3) and waters and one additional juice on 1/2 and did a juice cleanse.

I had purchased an extra part of the vanilla almond that I had the next day and was still sick. I finished the vanilla almond the next day and immediately ran to the bathroom upon finishing it - diarrhea again. The only thing left was the aloe Vera water which I didn’t consume. Had that today and immediately the same effect. Read More

Burger King, North Conway, Conway, North Conway, New Hampshire, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting

Report Type: Food Poisoning

DESCRIPTION

bought 2 cheese burgers and 2 $1.00 10 pc chicken nuggets and a soda at about 745 pm wife ate one burger and a nugget or two (** no bbq sauce in building**) i ate a burger and one order of nuggets and a couple from hers. by 1 am i was sick throwing up and have diarrea horrible today. wife felt ok as she only ate 1 or 2 chicken nuggets. I have worked in the food industry for 40 years......OBVIOUS case of food poisoning!!!! I know BK will do nothing, but maybe give you your money back after jumping through their hoops (another waste of time for a refund of a $5.00 meal) its rather insulting to say heres your money back and we'll just call it even when you paid for a "SAFE" food product and you are the one paying the price of being sick.....i have plenty of food that could be given out for FREE, its that it just might make you sick or kill you........WANT SOME? same concept as bk giving you your money back...feel better now??? BY THE WAY this is the 3rd time over maybe 5-10 years that this place's food has made me sick and i have a cast iron stomach not much if anything other than BAD FOOD makes me sick. Never had a problem at McDonalds that is just down the street. I know where I will NEVER EAT AGAIN at BK as even the thought of your food right now makes me sick. All my business and references by word of mouth and the internet platforms which there are lots to send the message that BURGER KING food has a high potential at this location of making you sick (in my experience) and do not eat at these business's as it is a do so at your own risk to your health as all you MIGHT get other than possibly deathly ill, vomiting, diarea,headache, loss of a day of your life in productivity.... is ...maybe your money back in return for your trusting patronage Read More

My daughter was food poisoned on Monday January 14, 2019. She got a chicken bowl. Soon after eating she had horrible stomach pain followed by fever, diarrhea and vomiting. This in fact has been the 2nd time this happened. The first time we were not sure if that was the case. She had the exact same symptoms but we gave them the benefit of the doubt. This time we are sure that is was the food (chicken contaminated) because her symptoms were the same. We would like to be compensated. Read More

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.
