“PORK SAUSAGE I cooked 3 pork sausages from fresh pack of 18 unopened and purchased the previous day. (these were bought straight home and refrigerated). about 3-4 hours later I was constantly vomiting sausage and violently being sick. I was eventually hospitalised with food poisoning when I became very weak. ”
“pre-cooked corned beef Precooked corn beef purchased on 3/10/20. Refrigerated, unopened. Opened and heated on stove top 3/18. Put in refridge. 3/19 eaten by person A at 4pm. No problem. Eaten from refridge by person B at 9 pm. Person B had severe vicious projectile vomiting at 7am-11am. 4 others... in home had eaten corned beef earlier then person A and B but had no problems. ”
“I HAD A HOT DOG there at about 5:00 0 Just me I've been down here at home still feel bad. Just drink water trying to wash the poison out. I had also eaten about 10 of there Kirkland shrimp cocktail with there sauce the remainder I have in my... fridge. This bug is bad it knocked the shit out of me literally. Just thought I'd report it. ”
“I think it was pineapple that’s been in the fridge for a week I’m the only one who ate it and s far, the only one with symptoms ”
“I bought salmon and cook part of it the same day. Later on that day I have severe diarrhea. I wasnt exactly sure if it was the salmon considering the fact that I've never gotten sick from salmon before. I properly stored and froze the rest of the salmon and... waited for a few days to pass. I defrosted and cooked another piece and hour later had very serve diahrrrea once and. It had to be the salmon considering the fact that that I hadn't eat prior. What are the next steps I should take? ”
I wanted to inform you that I purchased a pack of Scallops on March 1, 2020.
I made them for dinner for me and my son. Later that night we both suffered nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
I am certain we had food poisoning from your Scallops.
What... is your protocol for this?
I also heard of a similar case in Beaverton involving Scallops.
“I ate the same foods as my family on March 7, except for 1 item - the Polish hotdog. I ate at about noon and felt fine until I went to bed. I couldn't fall asleep and I was feeling nauseas and sweaty. Then from 2am to 5:30am Sunday, I... was in the bathroom constantly. The next 2 days I was drained of energy. ”
“Canned chicken - 4 people in the same house sick with same symptoms. Only food in common was soup made with the chicken. Only other ingredients were a can of black bean, a can of corn and a can of diced tomatoes. Symptoms started the next days and were more... severe for some. Symptoms lasted about 3 days. ”
“After eating some Peanut Butter and Thin Mint girls scout cookies last night I experienced a really bad burning sensation in my throat, and then my ears. The burning sensation was bad enough to wake me up numerous times throughout the night. It burns like an acid reflux problem, but... without the heart burn. The burning sensation is there in both ears and throat even when I don’t swallow. This is very strange, as I’ve had these cookies my entire life and have not experienced this before. ”
“Wolfgang Puck's Organic Chicken and Wild Rice soup I was the only one who ate the soup and the only one who got sick. I started feeling nauseous about 1 hour after eating the soup. Several hours later I woke up from sleep because I felt nauseous. I had diarrhea... and vomited. I vomited two other times and each time when I went back to bed, I could not get warm. After completely voiding my stomach, I felt better and then better after some electrolytes. Still feel weak the next day though. ”
“March 3rd 2020 I call in a order to pick up curbside. I ordered the Louisiana pasta and chicken and biscuits and the pork chops for my family. The time was around 6:30 p.m. I went straight home and was eating before 7 p.m.
Within hours myself my wife and... my daughter became severely ill, and ended up in the hospital early the next day. Vomiting diarrhea body aches fever, the medical staff diagnosed us with food poisoning. And because it was the only thing I had eaten that day I believed it be true. We were admitted into hospital giving IVs and medication I've been released 24 hours later. I personally called the store manager explain to him what happened and he apologized and said he would check into it to see if there were any other reported cases that night. He did return my call only to inform me that he hadn't heard of anything else happening. He also informed me that he would contact the regional manager and explain what happened to my family. I waited on the regional manager to contact me but it never happened. So I ended up calling the regional manager myself and he offered an additional apology. My wife and I had to miss 2 consecutive days without pay and my daughter 2 days out of school. My attorney has advised me to go on several of the major news that works to explain my experience. But I'm just glad that we are feeling better. ”
“Stir fry. My son and several friends met for dinner on 3/10/2020 on the campus (they all live off campus but get together for dinner on occasion because they have money in their campus food account). Four of them had the stir fry. All four of them had a combination... of severe stomach pains, vomiting and diarrhea the morning of 3/11/2020. ”
“Frozen crispy crowns heated up I noticed the potatoes weren't looking as good as usual when heating them up in the oven, I ate a few and they didn't taste normal, so I threw them away, then like 2 hours later, I started having massive diarrhea, the worst I've ever... had in my life, 2-3 times per hour, several accidents, and I can't drink enough water because it makes me more nauseous, this is very scary, ”
“I ordered my groceries online. The order included 1⁄2 lbs boar's head Sausalito turkey. After eating the turkey, the next morning I had diarrhea, then was tired and sick all day. I had eaten other foods, so I was not able to isolate my symptoms to 1 particular food. A... few days later I ate more of the Boar's Head Sausalito turkey. The next morning I am now sick again, so I'm 99% sure it is the boar's head product. ”
“Ate dinner at 6PM. I had the burger with onions and bacon. Had to heat the burger upon arriving at home since it was cold. Noticed no other problems besides temperature. Went to bed, began having cold sweats, fever and nightmares. Woke up with an intense burning in my stomach... (not acid reflux) and nauseated. Vomited what seemed like the entirety of the burger. Stomach still burned after vomiting but nausea went away. ”
