I started eating a Digiorno croissant crust, three meat pizza, and then I started getting very ill after eating 4 slices. I ended up throwing up nonstop, 5 times, and it was spaced apart. I had the worst cold chills, sweats, and this was the worst food... See More poisoning I’ve ever had in my entire life, bar none. I’m sure that people are dying from it. My body has been pre exposed to certain traumas in my life, and I believe that it is killing the average person. I need to get a hold of the manufacturer because I’m sure there are “casualties of war” unfortunately, in an attempt to save lives. For a while I thought I was going to die because of it. The number on the box is 32925259 51 EST5754U14:23

If you see this number on the box, run, don’t walk away, as you will likely suffer the same fate as I have, and you might not be lucky enough to live to tell it. I would bet money that someone had to have died from it already by what I experienced. Eat at your own risk. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Chills, Night Sweats
