Product: Blue cheese
I ate the wedge salad with blue cheese salad dressing. It tasted funny, like extra blue. I have had extra blue cheese made fresh in Austria and loved it, but this unfortunately was nothing like that. I shared a burger with my husband and it touched the... salad dressing and the burger had an "extra smoked" taste that I was not a fan of, so after a few bites I gave it back to my husband and he noted that the burger touched the blue cheese salad dressing and had a different flavor, the one I was describing. I started to feel bloated 2 hours after the meal. My (upper abdomen) stomach started cramping 2-3 hours after the meal. At 2 am, about 5-6 hours after the meal, I had diarrhea. I could not eat the next day and had the runs for a solid 38-48 hours. After 48 hours, I had more solid forming stools, but they were still soft and explosive. 72 hours later I finally have soft small formed stools, but nausea and cramping occasionally. Went to the MD and they said it sounds like food poisoning and if it gets worse they will test for e-coli, but stay hydrated and Pepto Pismo. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Bloating, Cramps
Purchased two kinds of blue cheese, Gorgonzola from Italy, and Blue from France on 8/23/21. Had somewhat of an amoniated smell, not unusual for blue cheeses. On 8/30 I consumed the Gorgonzola. The next morning I was so sick with projectile vomiting I had to call off... from work. I stayed in bed all day. Maybe a week in the refrigerator was too long, I don't know. Moving forward I think I have PTSD and will avoid blue cheese in the future. stores raise the bar for hygiene and sanitation. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting

I ordered the ribeye with a salad and blue cheese coleslaw. The steak *appeared* to be cooked correctly, but was chewy and bland with an aftertaste that says “that’s not right”. My husband tasted it too and said it was awful. I ate just under half the... steak. 6 hours later I got stabbing stomach pains. An hour after that was several rounds of watery diarrhea. I mean, straight water. The following morning produced more diarrhea. I had eaten nothing but a chocolate chip cookie, and the steak that day.
My educated guess is that my meat was contaminated with clostridium perfringens. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Stomach Pain
