Nausea, Vomiting, Weakness

5 years ago

I took the transit system downtown to eat lunch at the bar around 2pm. I ordered a crispy chicken entrée on top of polenta and wild mushroom with flashed shishito peppers on the side. I noticed right away the broth/sauce from the mushroom and polenta was cold... See More and lukewarm in certain areas. The mushroom had a gummy texture and the sauce had an overpowering taste of mushroom. The chicken tasted okay however it was over-seasoned with salt. Possibly old chicken too. After the bill, I started feeling symptoms of nausea while taking the transit home. As I got home, that's when I realized I was for sure food poisoned as I felt weak and useless basically for the next few days not able to keep anything down including liquids. Still recovering from minor nauseous symptoms today which is a week after the incident. I want to say the shishito peppers are in the safe zone, but not entirely sure. Leading cause in my opinion to my symptoms was the chicken entrée with polenta and wild mushroom. Dish ran for $25 | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Weakness See Less

Update February 13, 2024

The CDC published an update on the multistate outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes linked to queso fresco and cotija cheeses produced by Rizo Lopez Foods, Inc, no additional illnesses have been reported, but additional recalls have been issued for products made with or containing recalled dairy products from Rizo Lopez Foods, Inc, you can find a summary of these recalls here iwaspoisoned.com

February 6, 2024

The FDA and CDC are investigating a multi-state outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes linked to queso fresco and cotija cheeses produced by Rizo Lopez Foods, Inc. The outbreak has resulted in 26 illnesses, 23 hospitalizations, and 2 deaths across 11 states (AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, NV, NC, OR, TN, TX, WA). The implicated products were distributed nationwide. The FDA's investigation is ongoing.

The outbreak, which dates back to 2014, is linked to the consumption of queso fresco and cotija cheeses. The investigation includes cases from 2014 to 2023. Previous investigations by the CDC in 2017 and 2021 identified these types of cheeses as potential sources of the outbreak, but a specific brand was not identified at the time.

The issue was discovered when a sample of Rizo Bros Aged Cotija tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes during a routine check by the Hawaii State Department of Health’s Food and Drug Branch in January 2024. Rizo Lopez Foods, Inc. voluntarily recalled one batch of the cheese in response. The CDC and FDA reopened the investigation after new illnesses were reported in December 2023 and genomic analysis of the cheese sample revealed it was the same strain of Listeria causing the outbreak.

Of the 22 people interviewed, 16 reported eating queso fresco, cotija, or similar cheeses. Among those who remembered specific brands, three people who fell ill between 2014 and 2022 reported consuming Don Francisco brand queso fresco or cotija. Don Francisco is one of the brands of recalled cheeses.

An ongoing FDA inspection at Rizo Lopez Foods, Inc. has also found a positive sample of Listeria monocytogenes. Genomic analysis confirmed it is the same strain causing the outbreak. In response, Rizo Lopez Foods, Inc. has voluntarily recalled all sell-by dates of its dairy products, including cheese, yogurt, and sour cream sold under various brand names (see the full list in the link below). The company has temporarily ceased production and distribution of these products while the investigation continues.

Recalled products include all "Sell By” dates of cheese, yogurt, and sour cream (crema) sold under the brand names:
- Tio Francisco
- Don Francisco
- Rizo Bros
- Rio Grande
- Food City
- El Huache
- La Ordena
- San Carlos
- Campesino
- Santa Maria
- Dos Ranchitos
- Casa Cardenas
- 365 Whole Foods Market

The full product description, size, and UPCs are listed below. Additional information is also available in the recall notice.

In case you are experiencing Listeria monocytogenes symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, 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.

The Andalusian Government's Health and Consumer Affairs department is investigating a norovirus outbreak at CEIP Santiago Ramón y Cajal school in El Ejido, Almeria, Spain. Approximately 40 individuals have been affected by the virus.

The outbreak, which was first detected on January 30, has primarily resulted in... See More mild symptoms among those infected, including vomiting and diarrhea. Despite the outbreak, no hospital admissions have been necessary, according to Health department sources. The majority of those affected are children associated with the school.

The discovery of the outbreak came about through public health investigations following reports of vomiting and diarrhea. The school's canteen has continued to operate normally, in line with medical inspection guidelines. The Health and Consumer Affairs department is currently conducting further investigations and inspections to manage the situation.

Norovirus is very contagious and is easily transmitted from person to person most through the oral/fecal route. Considering that hand sanitizer does NOT work against this virus, it is important to wash your hands with soap frequently. Use bleach to clean and disinfect surfaces.

In case you experience Norovirus symptoms, such as vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, and nausea, report it now. 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
