Chinese Food Poisoning

Updated

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.

“I ordered a combo plate of Chinese food from a local Chinese restaurant, with fries on the side.

See More was opened, instead of closed. I ate most of the food. The following day I felt very sick in my stomach and nauseous, and also had diarrhea. I won’t let this go unnoticed!! Restaurants need to securely wrap their food orders so that the delivery person doesn’t grab the food. I gonna have to deal with this stupid sickness for like 2 days, interfering with my schedule.
