My wife and I shared her homemade spaghetti in Bologna. I felt sick shortly after, and a few hours later I became sick for the next 10 hours and had to stay home the next day, unable to eat or drink. My wife was unaffected. This has... happened to me a few times and my wife is never affected, but I get extreme food poisoning.
Mutti Tomato sauce, borilla spaghetti noodles, garlic, onion, pesto. Not sure what made me sick. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Vomiting

Within 10 minutes of eating Minestrone soup, I had intense stomach pain, quickly followed by an explosion of diarrhea and shaking so bad I felt like a human jackhammer. I could not get warm. Every 10 minutes to the toilet and back to the bed. This continued... extreme for almost 36 hours! I have only eaten a half a banana, some apple sauce and two cups of hot tea. I have never been so sick. At one point while trying to make it back to the bed I lost consciousness and fell right on the hardwood floor. I have never passed out in my life! Now, after almost 48 hours, I was finally able to get to cvs and buy peptobismol and some anti diarrheal pills. Feeling a bit better but never again Amy’s Kitchen.
