French fries, Went to dinner to celebrate daughter’s birthday and redeem free bday meal. Believe something was wrong with the French fries or grease they were cooked in as both my 13 yr old and 3yr old daughters have vomited multiple times throughout the night and into... the early morning as I type this message. You can see the chunks of potatoes in the vomit. My wife, my son, and I are asymptomatic as we didn’t have fries but rather tots as side with our meal. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting
