McDonald's, Lakewood Boulevard, Downey, CA, USA

Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea Vomiting

Report Type: Food Poisoning


This McDonalds is usually fine for my family and me since we always go to it. After school around 3, we decided to get McDonald's and my mom, sister and I all had Fries and my brother just had a Chicken sandwich. I had thought that I ate too fast because my stomach was hurting and I usually take naps around 4 so I did thinking nothing of the pain. At around 7 I had woken up to nausea and I went to the bathroom to use the toilet and I had diarrhea. I felt a strong need to throw up and I couldn't so I forced myself and I threw up way more than I thought I would. I went to sleep at around 10 thinking I should just sleep it off. I hear my sister start to throw up and that's when I was thinking about what we ate. She and I were throwing up all night long and we would switch from feeling cold to feeling hot at times with aching bones. We were going to go to school still feeling nauseous the next morning until my mom started to throw up and complained about feeling cold and having diarrhea. We had all eaten the same Fries and my brother just had a Chicken Sandwich and feels fine. We all still have diarrhea, bone aches, and are nauseous still. Read More
