Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea

DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION

I ordered a Pizza (Half & Half Meteor & Pepperoni) Potato Wedges Garlic Pizza Bread 7x Franks Hot Wings Cookies & 3x BBQ Dips on the 14th September at 2052 from your Barming Maidstone store for myself and my wife. The order arrived at 2115 and we ate it straight away. At around 2140 my wife rushed to the toilet with bad stomach Cramps and diarrhoea. She told me she was in terrible pain and didnt feel well. I also the started to get stomach Cramps but no diarrhoea. We ate the same food apart from the Chicken Wings which my wife just had. She did say at the time that the Pizza meat didnt smell right but didnt think anything of it. She continued to go to and through the toilet so I decided to try and contact the store with no success. After not being able to reach the store I decided to use the contact form online to raise my complaint. I received a prompt response at 2258 asking me to complete a questionnaire which I did. I then received a letter in the post dated the 19th September to say my complaint had been investigated but that you were not willing to do anything further. I was offered 50% off my next order of 15 or more which I found very insulting.On the 23rd September I emailed a response to this letter to state that I did not agree with the findings and that I was insulted by the offer. I asked that the response be re-considered as I was not even offered a refund let alone compensation for the experience and inconvenience. I asked for a response within seven working days but have not had any response. I have made it clear that I will approach the media and publish my story on social media to warn others of the fact they may get food poisoning eating at dominos Barming. I will also put posters up around the store to highlight the risk. I am appalled by the service received from such a big company and will not settle until I have a satisfactory outcome. Read More

Panda Express, North Collins Street, Arlington, TX, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting

DESCRIPTION

Beijing Beef was not cooked and it tasted different than normal I purchased The Plate With double Beijing Beef and Choi mein noodles and a large side of Teriyaki Chicken October 15, 2018 around about 6pm - 7pm. When I started to eat I noticed that the Beijing Beef didn't taste like it usually did but I was hungry so I just overlooked that little detail. About a couple of hours passed and I started to have intense gas and shortly after that I started to have diarrhea and it was coming out yellow. And that is when I start to get these severe stomach Cramps by this time it was about 12ish am and from then on until about 11am when everything ceased. I was going to the bathroom probably every ten to fifteen minutes and I also started vomiting and those stomach Cramps where so intense I damn near cried they wouldn't stop for nothing more than 2 minutes and then they would come back ten fold, it was like getting stabbed in the stomach or abdomen area over a hundred times and still living through it all! I would try to got to sleep for a bit just to get woken up by the stomach Cramps and running to the restroom from 12am to 11am and stomach cramping stopped eventually and the vomiting but my diarrhea is still lingering right now it's 5:34pm October 16, 2018 and I am still experiencing diarrhea and I started to have headaches and I feel really weak I have been dehydrated for the longest I wouldn't wish this on my enemies at all.

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.
