FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Iwaspoisoned.com?
A crowdsourcing /social platform designed to allow the reporting of potential food safety incidents in real-time by consumers.
What is food poisoning?
Food poisoning is a common, yet distressing and sometimes life-threatening problem for millions of people in the U.S. and throughout the world. People infected with food-borne organisms may be symptom-free or may have symptoms ranging from mild intestinal discomfort to severe dehydration and bloody diarrhea. Many foodborne illnesses are acute, meaning they happen suddenly and last a short time, and many people recover on their own without treatment.
How quickly does food poisoning start after eating contaminated food?

If the poisoning is caused by a chemical agent (e.g. ammonia) the symptoms can begin within minutes. An example of this is the Laraway Elementary School incident in Illinois – with over 150 children sickened from ammonia contaminated chicken tenders in the school lunch. Details can be seen here.

However food poisoning is most commonly caused by organisms such as Norovirus or Salmonella. Onset from this type of food poisoning can range from as little as 1 hour (Staphylococcus aureus) to as long as 28 days (Hepatitis A).

A table explaining onset times and duration for organisms that frequently cause illness can found on the FDA website link found here.

What do I do if have food poisoning?
The CDC recommends to see your doctor if you have: – High fever (temperature over 101.5 F, measured orally) – Blood in the stools – Prolonged vomiting that prevents keeping liquids down (which can lead to dehydration) – Signs of dehydration, including a decrease in urination, a dry mouth and throat, and feeling dizzy when standing up.- – Diarrheal illness that lasts more than 3 days
I thought restaurants had to meet certain food safety standards—how is it that I could have gotten sick from something I ate?
Wouldn't I be able to tell the food is bad? It is possible to get food poisoning from any food or anywhere you eat food, even when safety standards are in place. You cannot always tell the food you are eating is bad.
Why should I report my illness?
To stop others from getting sick! Reporting food borne illness helps to detect outbreaks, and enables better surveillance of establishments that have repeat problems.
How does Iwaspoisoned.com use my report to help fight foodborne illness?
We monitor the reports, and forward alerts to health departments. We also monitor for outbreaks – where multiple reports have come in from the same place in the same time frame. We have an escalation process when this happens, and many news sources watch our data. We have been successful in helping detect outbreaks.

WinCo Foods, West Bell Road, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea Cramps
“Winco Flavored Seltzer Water Me and my fiance tried something new into our diet only recently that was the only different thing we had to eat and granted we drank them before but never had this issue. My fiance drank most of it which was Winco brand flavored strawberry seltzer... See More water but only I had a few sips. 2 to 3 days pass and during those days my fiance has been feeling a pain in her stomach region after this so she just went to urgent care yesterday and found out her small intestine is now enflamed and having some bouts of diarhhea. Hours after she got back I havent been feeling so good and decided to try and go to sleep thinking it might just pass after some good sleep. However now this is my 3rd time waking up each time after 2 or 3 hours with extreme watered down diarhhea nothing solid at all. I already have IBS from time to time but mostly due to stress but its never as bad as this is. My stomach is making all kinds of sounds that accompany real bad diarhhea and I can't even walk around or lie down decently without feeling waves of uncomfortable pressure in my stomach. What also came with this unfortunate package is sulfur burps it tastes like your burping up eggs. What's more I have to go to work like this so once I get there hopefully they will understand and let me go to urgent care after. I will try to keep this post updated if I find anything new out.
