Magnani Poultry, Hopkins Street, Berkeley, CA, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea

Report Type: Food Poisoning

DESCRIPTION

I ate a takeout barbecued chicken leg for dinner on Tuesday 1/14/2019 and awoke in the morning, 1/15/2019 with fever, chills, nausea. Bouts of diarrhea and extreme fatigue followed. It is now 1/18 and I am starting to recover. I had one other experience at Magnani's around Thanksgiving when I purchased a raw turkey leg and breast that smelled bad when I unwrapped them. I brought these back immediately and obtained a refund. The Magnani worker said, something happened with failure to "rotate" to turkey parts???? The uncooked poultry does not look fresh. Now I am wondering about the takeout barbecue chicken parts. Read More

He had chicken fried steak dinner, I had the vaquero chopped steak dinner with cheese, onion and jalapeno. What a mistake! I have never been so sick in my life! My entire body has not experienced the intestinal suffering as this! Read More

Wendy's, South Main Street, Centerville, OH, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting

Report Type: Food Poisoning

DESCRIPTION

Tuesday evening, 1/15/19, my son (15 yo) and I ordered 4 for $4 deal. We both had chicken sandwiches, nuggets, and fries. We had different drinks (his soda, mine tea) and I had a jr bacon cheeseburger too. We both shared our nuggets and fries with my 2 yr old. We took ill over night with severe stomach cramps and nausea. My son also was vomitting. I had diarrhea. The baby started with diarrhea the next day and it smelled like a septic tank. My son has been sick, but only belching and farting now and smells horrible like rotten eggs. I was doing better yesterday, but early this morning waves of nausea and stomach cramps w/ bloating overtook me. I am on the verge of throwing up. The belching is starting to have a bad taste/smell. The toddler is still cranky and having occasional bouts of diarrhea. Unsure if fevers were present, but fatigue is for all of us as it takes all our energy to deal with the nausea and cramps. The chicken nuggets were the only common food and we all got sick at the same time. As well, my nuggets had a strange taste too them. I assumed it was my taste buds. 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.
