“I got off work early today. Picked my kid's up, it's 103 degrees today. They wanted soft serve ice cream cones, so we drove to our usual place but it was packed, the line was around the corner. We thought of an alternative, we went to there to get frosties.... I can not attest to the cleanliness of the location we visited, we used the drive through. Ate them on the drive home, maybe a 15 minute drive. About 5 minutes inside my door my stomach is in knots, cramps and severe nausea. My daughters throwing up, my sons crying grabbing his tummy. My family and I have been running to the bathroom for the past 2 hours. We're never eating there again!, 3 persons affected. Myself (32 F), my daughter (9 F) and my son (3 M). Roughly 20-25 minutes before symptoms set in. ”

“February 1, 2020, at 1:47 PM. I purchased 3 Haagen Daz ice creams, 14 oz size, assorted flavors, at this store. The first one was consumed immediately, the same day. It appeared to be OK. The second one was consumed later that evening. The second one seemed to be OK,... but as I got closer to the bottom, it was obvious it had not been refrigerated properly. The bottom had melted and then refrozen, before I bought it. Ck'd my freezer, the thermometer showed a temp of minus 5 degrees F.
Developed nausea a few hours later that night, then extreme fatigue for the better part of a week, Notified the store manager, of the refrozen ice cream and asked him to ck with his vendor to try to prevent future occurrences. He sent me an email a few days later indicating he wanted to discuss it with me. Saw him Feb 7th, Thursday, at the store. I told him I wanted to discuss it as well but was in a hurry, would do it later when it was mutually convenient. He, not to be put off, followed me down the back stairs and started an apparently prepared speech. YOU ARE MAKING A LOT OF COMPLAINTS. IT SEEMS WE CAN'T PLEASE YOU. NO ONE HAS EVER COMPLAINED BEFORE. He even quoted the ice cream vendor, who was not present, as saying, he, the vendor had never a complaint about melted ice cream, he repeated his speech several more times with the additional filip that, "YOU WOULD BE HAPPIER GOING SOMEWHERE ELSE.”
As background, the store freezer, full of ice cream, had malfunctioned a short time before that. Many pints of ice cream had melted but were refrozen when the freezer came back on. I mentioned to him, at the time, those ice creams should be disposed of. The vendor or he may have been putting a few pints of refrozen, spoiled, ice cream back in the freezer in an attempt to minimize the dollar loss.
Whatever the cause, spoiled ice cream should not be sold. Telling customers to go somewhere else is not an effective way of dealing with concerns about spoiled products. They and the Health Department need to take the necessary steps to prevent future occurrences.
“Ate a taco and a veggie tostada which were served with lettuce, cream, and cheese around 8pm. Experienced the worst poisoning of my life due to the complete negligence of the staff in serving unrefrigerated and/or old food. Pretty much lived at the toilet the entire night and puked absolutely... everything in the morning. I’m still out of commission and feel I will be for the next few days. Two others who accompanied experienced similar symptoms throughout the night. AVOID this place at all costs, DO NOT risk catching a nightmare at this place because of their lack of sanitation and care. ”
“Pesto Had pesto on cheese and crackers last night. New container of Genoese fresh basil pesto. Best before date 14 March 2020. QR code 9 417606 000470. Had 5 crackers at 10pm with pesto on. Woke up at 1:00 with reflux symptoms, burning in chest. Woke up at 4:00 feeling... nauseous, diahorrea then 2 hours later vomiting- unable to keep anything down. Severe stomach cramps. The thought of the pesto makes me feel more nauseous. Had nothing to drink or eat since. ”
