Chinese Food Poisoning
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. The delivery person took a long time to get here almost an hour, when the expected delivery was 30-45 mins. When he dropped off the food I noticed the French fries box... 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. ”

Since then I have continued to consume their frozen food and keep getting diarrhea. I have eaten Amy’s for over a year and I have never experienced anything like what I have recently.

“Yesterday around 11:30am, I ate at a Chinese buffet (won't name it because I don't fully know if it caused the poisoning). I regularly eat there and don't have problems, and everything seemed very fresh. At 7:30PM, I made a baked bean dish at home. By 8am this morning, I... experienced very watery and horrendous-smelling diarrhea that has gone on every half hour for six hours and counting. I had to leave work after a half day. No other symptoms, just nonstop diarrhea, and I don't know what food caused this. ”

There must be some ingredient in the icecream that causes adverse effects. They should publish the exact ingredients. ”
