Horrible place to shop and will not take responsibility for the food poisoning I received.
( Ciguatera ) is the food poisoning I got by eating the swordfish on June 12, 2016 Hospital was Belton Regional where I was rushed to on a 911 call. I stayed... there for 2 days and almost died thanks to the Fire Department and the Hospital for saving my life.. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Fever, Vomiting
On May 2, 2016 evening I ate Grouper Piccata at Anthony's and woke up at 1:30 the next morning with diarrhea, vomiting. I ended up in the ER at Doctor's Hospital with Ciguatera poisoning. The scary symptoms set in the next few days (low blood pressure, shortness... of breath, extreme itching, severe insomnia, then severe stomach pain). I spent my vacation in the hospital. The restaurant never warned me that the fish could have eaten the toxic algae. It is odorless, tasteless and does not cook off or freeze off. I had to hospitalized as soon as I got back to the USA as well. I am on short term disability b/c I couldn't work. Called the Dept of Health while still in Bahamas and was told Mr. Luther ferguson would call me back - never did and I was too sick at the time to follow up. Do NOT eat grouper, snapper, hogfish or barracuda in the Bahamas - you do NOT want this poisoning. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain, Shortness of Breath, Itching
