sweetgreen, International Drive, Tysons, VA, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea

DESCRIPTION

I ordered a custom Salad with kale, romaine, carrots, red cabbage, avocado, goat cheese, almonds, and balsamic dressing. I then headed to a 2 hr. meeting and another 45 min home. By the time I arrived, I was feeling ill and have been running to the bathroom for the past 5 hours. I hadn't consumed anything but Coffee prior and nothing afterward so I feel quite confident the Salad was the source of the trouble. Oddly, my good friend had the same issue last week from the same location. Since she had eaten other things afterward I doubted it was the salad. Now I wish I had listened to her. 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.
