“I was poisoned by a Cheese omelette on Emirates flight from Dubai to Sydney. Caused severe stomach cramps within two hours of eating it followed by relentless vomiting & diarrhoea for the remaining of the flight. A section of the plane was curtained off whilst a doctor on board checked... my vitals and blood sugar levels. A doctor on ground approved drugs to be administered to stop the cramps & vomiting however I couldn’t keep them down long enough. Upon arrival to Sydney the on-ground medics came aboard and gave me the clear to leave the aircraft. I was eventually taken off the flight in a wheelchair as I was too weak to walk and carry my bags. This was the worst experience I have endured with an illness and thought during the flight that something bad may happen to me; especially with Coronavirus circulating. I was travelling alone. It was just me that became unwell. My flight was Tuesday Feb 11th and I am still experiencing nausea, diarrhoea & lethargy. ”

I ate the first hashbrown. No problem. Delicious.
Put the straw in the cup and took 3 pulls on the straw and IMMEDIATELY I knew... I was poisoned. I had to vomit! Dry-heaved a fee times and put my finger down my throat and proceeded to vomit for 10 minutes+/-.
What was in that cup? I dont know. Cleaning products maybe? AND I'm scared to think what else ”
“I made the awful mistake of buying the Banyan Won Ton wrappers located in the refrigerated foods section by produce. I got the worst food poisoning of my life! My husband got sick as well. I am 3 months pregnant and was dangerously sick from this food, vomiting multiple times... with fever, chills, and was unable to leave my bed or eat much of anything for days. I went to the doctor after I wasn't getting any better and was informed the bad food had given me a bacterial infection. I contacted them about this incident and you know how they responded? They did not take me remotely serious. Offered me a refund for the bad food I tossed in the trash after it made me sick but did not offer to reimburse me for my medical bills as a result of the awful food poisoning and did NOT even pull the bad product from the store shelves! On the contrary! They RESTOCKED the shelf with MORE!!! Do not buy refrigerated foods from this store! This is not the first incident of me getting bad/spoiled food from this store. Its food quality is going down fast. They should be ashamed for knowingly selling food that makes people sick! ”
