It was supposedly made yesterday, so there was no way it could be expired. I ate about two legs and half a breast, I then stayed up and watched a movie for about an hour and a half before going to bed. I recall waking up at 12 AM on January 16, 2020 and sprinting to the bathroom where I was vomiting for about 15 minutes. This happened in about every hour through the night until about 9:30 when I rushed to urgent care. I could not drive due to nausea and relentless abdominal cramps. My grandmother picked me up from my home where I live alone. I have been prescribed with Ondansetron for the next 3 days. I spent $200 on a sickness I should not have gotten. I am in great overall health so this certainly comes as a shock. I do not have insurance so this was my money out of my pocket. I’d appreciate a phone call ASAP.
