"They referred me to the ER for tests, telling me if the bacteria reaches my kidneys, I could die." This statement shows how deadly food poisoning can be. I knew a woman who was hospitalized for 6 months and almost died from food poisoning contracted at a take-out Chinese restaurant in NY. A number of years ago a man contracted trichinosis and died after eating a hamburger that was ground at a local butcher. The butcher had previously used the grinder for pork and failed to sanitize the machine. This is a major health code violation in any location in The U.S. Some ways to protect yourself: 1) Never eat undercooked animal products. I know that many people like rare meat. They are taking a big risk of contracting food poisoning. This warning is posted on the department of health website in every state. 2) Never eat from a buffet that is at room temperature. It should be at 140 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the FDA website. 3) When preparing salads or cold dishes, never let them come into contact with utensils that were used to prepare raw meat. After handling raw meat, wash hands thoroughly with warm water and soap. This may sound like common sense but I can't count the number of times I've seen people contaminate salads after handling raw animal products. 4) Never cool cooked foods near a window. Cooked foods should be allowed to cool only after wrapping them tightly in aluminum foil. After cooling, they should be immediately refrigerated. 5) The temperature of a refrigerator should be 40 degrees F; a freezer should be 0 degrees. Get and use thermometers for both. 6) Do check health department online reports before eating at unfamiliar restaurants.

McDonald's, Dave Lyle Boulevard, Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA

Symptoms: Nausea Vomiting


I purchashed a 2 for $5 Big Mac deal, a small fry and a Sausage burrito. Well on the way home, I consumed my fries. Once I arrived at Home, I ate one of the Big Macs. When I was done and existed my vehicle; a fainting spell came over me, and I began to sweat. I stopped walking towards my house, because it seem like I was about to pass out. So I kneeled down on the ground to prevent falling into the rocks and getting hurt. My stomach began to hurt really bad. The symptoms lasted over 30 minutes while kneeling on the ground. I tried to stand afterwards but could not balance myself. My stomach pains increased and the need to vomit became intense. Once I got the food back out of my system; I continued to sweat for another 30 minutes. After the sweating spell went away, I was able to make it into the house. I went to the Mcdonalds on Dave Lyle blvd around 11:15 pm 9/20/2018. Read More
