1.  What inspired you to get into your profession?

When I was in college, during breaks I was performing asbestos abatement for a private company. I got paid a lot of money however it was grueling work. We would be toiling in our PPE  sweating in 100+heat, in tight and dark spaces, using jackhammers, etc. Once in a while a guy would show up, spend maybe 5 minutes in the danger


zone, collect some samples and get back out. I noticed he wore a suit and drove a new BMW. I asked him what he did and he replied he was...  Read More

Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea Vomiting

Report Type: Food Poisoning


I had a deluxe Chicken Sandwich with waffle Fries on Friday, nov 16 at 6:30pm. My stomach started to hurt around an hour after consumption. I went to bed early hoping to sleep it off. My stomache got worse and I woke up at 11:30pm running to the bathroom to vomit multiple times. Shortly after that, I had diarrhea. Then every 45m-1hr increments I continued to throw up. I couldn’t keep water down. I had chills and a fever. (Saturday) the next morning my stomach was still tender, I was nauseous and weak. I am nursing and all the throwing up and diarrhea caused me to be dehydrated which significantly decreased my milk supply and I was not able to care for my baby at all while sick. Fortunately, the symptoms only lasted about 24hrs. Read More

Domino's Pizza, Bayshore Road, Villas, NJ, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting

Report Type: Food Poisoning


Most local food places were closed so 3 of my friends and I ordered Pizza and Chicken bites from Domino’s last night in the Villas, Nj. It wasn’t surprising that the food was pretty terrible looking and not great tasting, but I did not expect that in the middle of the night all of us would become extremely ill. Vomiting and diarrhea. All. Night. Long. I’m not sure if it was the Pizza or the Chicken but something was bad enough to take down 4 adults in one shot. Gross. I’ll never order from Dominos again - even if it’s the only place open. Lesson learned. Read More
