    It is possible to get food poisoning from Chinese food. Chinese Restaurant Syndrome is a name previously used to describe symptoms related to MSG after consuming Chinese food. It is debatable whether MSG causes illness, but many high-risk ingredients are used in Chinese cooking such as rice, chicken, and seafood.
