    It is possible to get sick from cereal. In 2018 Quaker Oats recalled Capn' Crunch due to a Salmonella outbreak that infected 135 people. In 2010 Kellogg's recalled 28 million boxes of cereal due to 'off-flavor and smell'  and the possibility of symptoms, including nausea and diarrhea.

    Today, from KFC at 294 W Granada Blvd Ormond Beach, FL  32174 United States Chicken nuggets. My 8 year old son became violently ill within an hour of eating his chicken nuggets.
