Little Caesars Pizza, Illinois 83, Round Lake Beach, IL, USA

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Vomiting
Pizza I ordered a pepperoni pizza. They got it out to me really quickly, which is not usual because there were other customers who were waiting for their food. It was warm, but it did smell unusual. It didn’t smell like regular pizza and it was a little strange. I... See More got through 3 1/2 pieces and I felt like I was going to throw up. I literally said “I feel like I’m about to throw up.” As the urge to throw up got worse, I went to the bathroom and threw up. Threw up 3 pieces of pizza because I already spat out what I had in my mouth. After I threw up, I told ,myself that I’m not eating pizza again from this place. I don’t want to have this happen to anyone else, but it is pretty concerning because I never threw up after eating pizza.
