Wawa, U.S. 17, Lake Mary, FL, USA

5 years ago

U.S. 17, Lake Mary, 32746 Florida, United States

I visited this Wawa around 12:30 PM on 9/17/18 for lunch. I ordered a ham hoagie on a regular bagel with lettuce, mayo, cheddar cheese, and pickles. When I first ate my sandwich I noticed it tasted a little different, but I figured nothing of it and ate it anyway. Afterwards I felt a little sick, but about an hour later I had to go home early (I was at Seminole State for classes) because I was vomiting and having diarrhea. All night I was so nauseous I could not get out of bed, and when I did slump my way out of my blankets it was only to go to the bathroom or to throw up in my trashcan. I was up all night from how sick I felt. I've only slept maybe two or three hours in total.

As of right now, it's 4:25 PM on 9/18/18 and I'm still ill. I've vomited twice today and I still have to make frequent trips to the bathroom, and I'm so dizzy I can't stand up. I had a fever yesterday, but it's since gone down. I've been in bed for 20 hours.

I will not be visiting this Wawa ever again. I did contact them to let them know they may be serving unsafe food. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever, Nausea, Vomiting, Dizziness
