McDonald's, 5851 Northwest 177th Street, Miami, FL, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting

Report Type: Food Poisoning

DESCRIPTION

I visited this McDonald’s at 2:00 AM and they seemed to have been cleaning in the back I asked if they were opened and they kept looking each other not responding. Finally one worker came and said yes and said they were out of fries and chicken nuggets. I asked for four mchicken with light mayo. They took 3 mins because they said they were cooking it when I got it the mchicken were full of mayo so much mayo that it was disgusting I used napkins to wipe it off I noticed the mchicken were extremely burnt and crunchy like if they cooked it fast. Fast forward a few hours and I woke up throwing up and with diarrhea and stomach cramps that has not gone away. I am positive that this was due to the mchicken not being cooked properly by the workers. Since I had not eaten anything for hours before the mchicken. Read More

Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, West Colfax Drive, Lakewood, CO, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea Vomiting

Report Type: Food Poisoning

DESCRIPTION

12/19/2018 Wednesday evening, 7:30pm from the drive through. I had the Steak-burger with bacon, and my sister had the Single steak burger. We both had fries with that. We brought a double steak burger for a 3rd person, who luckily already ate, so this burger went to waste. Both my sister and I started with bad diarrhea, then Nausea followed by Vomiting 6-8 hours after eating. My fever hit 102.1 the following evening (exactly 24 hrs after eating the food). We were both fully incapacitated the following day with the body aches and trips to the bathroom. Fevers broke around 2-3am Friday morning. Neither of us were eating together until that meal from Freddy's, so given the same symptoms and timing, pretty sure the bug came from here. 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.
