Location: El Toro Restaurant, North 26th Street, Tacoma, WA, United States
Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea Vomiting
Details: My girlfriend and I visited El Toro on Pearl Street in Tacoma on January 2, 2018. We drank water with lemon and ate Chips and Salsa and Steak fajatas. I woke up January 4, 2018 at 6am with a lot of stomach cramping and overall not feeling well and went back to sleep. At 2pm I started violently vomiting, had severe diarrhea, chills, low grade fever and a headache. These symptoms lasted until 5am January 5, 2018. I went my doctor on January 5, 2018. I had a urinalysis done and they found blood in my urine. On January 8th (?) I saw that El Toro closed due to a Norovirus outbreak and immediately contacted my doctor to do testing. On January 8th or 9th I turned in a stool sample for the Norovirus test. The Norovirus test showed positive today - January 11, 2018. I also went back today to repeat my urinalysis. I have had severe stomach cramping and nausea since I got sick on January 4, 2018.
