After ordering a ice coffee, I thought it was going to be fine like usual but when I woke up from a nap that same day my throat was hurting and felt very scratchy.  | Symptoms: Other

#timhortons #saultstemarie #ontario #ca #coffee



that's not a food poisoning symptom. i think the problem is a lot of people think they're getting sick from food but illnesses such as gastro and colds and flus can be easily passed from people who are sick in the fast food restaurants. i always see people immediately jumping to food poisoning and potentially ruining a business name just because they may have caught a different type of illness. it shouldn't be reported as food poisoning unless confirmed by a doctor



Thats not food poisoning you just have a cold



Hi, thanks for taking the time. TIP: some symptoms of food poisoning can resemble those of a common cold. These can include fatigue and fever. However, food poisoning typically also involves gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain, which are not common symptoms of a cold. It's important to note that food poisoning is caused by consuming food contaminated with harmful pathogens.

Sorry but a scratchy throat isn’t good poisoning



Hi, thanks for your comment. TIP: While a scratchy throat is not a typical symptom of food poisoning, it can occur in some cases. However, a scratchy throat alone is more commonly associated with conditions like a cold, flu, or allergies.

That aint food poisoning love



Hi there, thanks for your comment. TIP: Based on the information provided, it's possible that the symptoms could be related to foodborne illness, but it's also possible they could be due to other factors. Foodborne illness symptoms can vary widely and can include throat discomfort. However, they more commonly include symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. If symptoms persist or worsen, it's recommended to seek medical attention.

Recent Interesting Reports

An outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli O157:H7 has been linked to PCC Community Markets – West Seattle Co-op in Seattle, with five reported cases and one hospitalization. The outbreak appears to be over, but the investigation is ongoing.

The outbreak, which occurred between February 14 and … See More
February 28, 2024, is associated with store-made guacamole purchased from the co-op on February 10, 2024. All five individuals affected exhibited symptoms of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli.

Disease Investigators conducted in-depth interviews with the affected individuals and Environmental Health Investigators visited the grocery on March 15, 2024. Laboratory testing confirmed four of the five cases as positive for E. coli O157:H7, with three of these cases genetically matching, indicating a common source of infection.

In case you are experiencing E. coli symptoms such as watery diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting; stomach cramps; and mild fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

Maybe they didnt cook them enough since flour needs to he cooked or you will get food poisoning. When i ate them 24th march i got bad cramps i thought it was usual ladies stuff but i gave one to my 6 year old daughter as well as my 2 year old daughter and i gave one to my 8 year old daughter and we all were sick so i knew it wasnt ladies stuff because i found them sleeping in the bathtub (without water dont worry) with a breakfast bowl (tiny bowl to throw up in gosh definetly wont fit) and in the morning i had nausea and vomiting but i didnt have anybody to help me look after them since my husband died :( so i brought them to the er and we were all hospitalized for 8 days
