    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.

    CDC, public health and regulatory officials in several states, and the FDA are investigating a multistate outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes infections linked to enoki mushrooms. Investigators are working to identify specific brands of enoki mushrooms that may be linked to these illnesses. As of November 15, 2022,... See More 2 people infected with the outbreak strain of Listeria have been reported from 2 states (MI and NV). Both have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported. Sick people’s samples were collected from October 5, 2022, to October 8, 2022.

    Enoki mushrooms are white and have long, thin stems. They are often sold in bunch with roots in sealed plastic packaging. They are popular in Japanese, Chinese, and Korean food, and they are almost always eaten cooked in soups, hot pots, and stir-fried dishes.

    CDC advises people who are pregnant, aged 65 or older, or have a weakened immune system to not eat raw enoki mushrooms. CDC also advises restaurants to not serve raw enoki mushrooms. Cook enoki mushrooms thoroughly to kill any foodborne germs.

    In case you are experiencing Listeria monocytogenes symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.

    To be clear this is not true food poisoning. The halal chicken with rice tasted fine, but 3 hours after eating with a friend (not my idea), I got a stuffy nose, sore throat, sweats sleeping, woke up with aches, headache, etc. This does not happen when... See More I go to restaurants. to sweeten the pot, I overheard “Chinese” (friend is us born Chinese) and this limping old man/owner decides to walk by us and mutter “there’s a gay here” half right pal - ironic a unique place such as this says that aloud of another. one of them must have told him about a car sticker, but missed the Rome/Italian, American flag, and police union decals. I read halal can incur issues due to preparation, etc. Whether this is the case or something “else” - This will not shine on them and I contacted my appropriate resources. | Symptoms: Nausea, Sore Throat, Headache, Sweating, Body Ache, Shaking See Less
