“On 3/4/21 picked up food for of 3 kids and 3 adults. The 2 kids (7 yrs old) who had the grilled nugget kid meal were sick with violent vomiting starting w/in about 2 hours of eating dinner and have gone for about 12 hours. Vomiting started every 15 min for almost 5-6 hours straight. Any amount of... water, even to rinse mouth seemed to initiate another round. No one else got sick. Other food items ordered were fried nugget kid meal, #1 w/fried chicken filet & 2 grilled spicy filet sandwiches. All kids had same lemonade type drink and everyone also had fries with meals. *Note - we do have dairy allergy in 1 of the kids and ordered grilled nuggets, we didn't get grilled but fried instead and they had to make new grilled for us. The kids were all going to share the 2 6 count nugget meals. Since we had extra fried nuggets, the 5 yr old decided on the fried nuggets. This was a blessing in disguise as we would have had 3 kids vomiting all night instead of 2.* ”
