Jimmy John's, Division Street, Stevens Point, WI, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea

report
DESCRIPTION

I became sick 2 hours after eating a Beach Club (no sprouts), pickle & coke, all bought from this Jimmy Johns at about 3 PM on 9/20/18. Everything else I ate on this day was also eaten by 4 to 10 other adults, none of whom became at all sick or unwell. My sickness was moderate, subsiding after 9 hours, therefore it didn't warrant a doctor's visit. This Jimmy Johns is an excellent franchise location that I've bought this exact same order from at least 30 times before with 0 problems. I don't believe my sickness was due to any negligence at this specific location, but possibly due to a food item supplied to them. Again, my sickness was not evaluated by a doctor. 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.
