June 6, 2016 2:42 PM
17125 North 79th Avenue, Glendale, 85308 Arizona, United States
Five of us ate at Old Country Buffet at about 1:30 pm on June 5, 2016 Sunday PM. Three of us good food poisoning. My two sisters have sever vomiting and diarrhea on their flight home to Chicago, I had some diarrhea all night long. I think it was the Tilapia because my wife was free of vomitting, she did not eat the Tilapia. What will you do to prevent recurrence? we will never eat their again.

Woke up around 2 in the morning and had explosive diharea. Tried to sleep but couldnt. Basically had to go to the bathroom every half hr after that. This has been going on for the last 6 hrs and im only passing yellow liquid. Ive never expierienced such unpleasentness and cramps. So im just drinking gatorade hopeing to hydrate and keep it in. My girls are fine so im assuming it was the taco bar. Stay away from the taco bar. ”
