I reported getting food poisoning from Frosted Cheerios earlier this summer. I hadn't heard much more about it after the initial wave of reports and figured maybe they were safe now. Maybe it was in my head when it happened last time! I've spoken to my mom... See More and she's said "how sick could Cheerios possibly make you?" and I have a bad habit of assuming mother knows best!

I grabbed some Frosted Cheerios from the same store as before, ate them this morning, and got even more sick than I had reported earlier this year. Feverish, goosebumps on my arms, two bouts of, genuinely, the worst diarrhea I've ever had. We're talking massively bloody, thick red blood. It looked like blood bathtub in my toilet.

Last night I had ordered the general tso's chicken with white rice. Nothing seemed off about it when I ate it, other than some of the chicken having a texture less like breast and more like thigh. I slept through the night with no issue, but when... See More I woke up this morning I experienced nausea after taking my medication and supplements. There is a chance it could've been the zinc I took, but I haven't had this happen before when I had taken my zinc on an empty stomach. I was experiencing gas pains as well. After drinking some milk in hopes to calm my stomach (not my brightest idea), I immediately went to the bathroom and threw up the entire contents of my stomach. The food from last night wasn't visible, but I felt a bit better. Then, I drank water and ate some apple sauce and toast which are usually pretty safe foods when my stomach is upset. Immediately felt like I had to poop and throw up, and ran to the bathroom again. Throw up until I dry heaving and almost sh*t myself (pardon the French). In addition, after the second time I got weird sharp tingles all over my body like I needed to itch everywhere. Not sure if that was related but it was pretty alarming so I thought I would include it. I drank some water right after and couldn't even keep that down. Now I'm not feeling as nauseous since I haven't eating or drank anything after that last time, but I'm having diarrhea. I love them but I'm not sure I'll eat there again. :(
