    Coleslaw could likely be the culprit of food poisoning. Because coleslaw is often made with cabbage and mayonnaise, there is the risk of Salmonella, Listeria, and E.coli contamination. All produce should be washed prior to preparation and consumption, and foods containing animal byproducts should be kept below 40 degrees.

    I ordered a Butter burger no bun, and a side of coleslaw the coleslaw tasted funnny and was sticky texture, I had two bites and threw it out, that is all I ate on Friday 09/23/22. That night I had diarrhea/vomiting and cramps with nausea for two... See More days and was running a fever. Probably will be going to a doctor or hospital if it doesn't stop by today. I don't know if it's salmonella or something else but I need it checked out as soon as possible. I called to let the manager know and they just blew me off and said are you sure it wasn't something else bc we sold 200 coleslaws and no one else called saying they were sick. This restaurant is not up to food safety standards. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cramps | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Cramps See Less

    Purchased the coleslaw September 14th. Coleslaw remained refrigerated the entire time while in my possession except for the short ten-minute trip home from the store and was well within its printed sell-by time frame. Opened the next day to eat some. The film seal was entirely intact... See More and had no signs of damage. The coleslaw smelled a little differently than I'm used to from other brands and place I've had coleslaw, but this was my first time trying this brand, so I assumed their recipe was just a little different than the rest. After having consumed no food at all for over six hours, I opened the sealed container to eat some. Tasted fine. An hour later, opened the container again to eat some more, and the smell was worse, almost like it was rotten. Took one more bite to check it out, tasted fine, but the smell was so horid, I threw it out to get the smell out of my house. This coleslaw was the only food I had eaten in over six hours. About thirty minutes after discarding the coleslaw, my stomach started to feel uneasy. Antacids didn't help the uneasiness. Got home from work ninety minutes after that and had explosive diarrhea. The stool looked solely like the coleslaw, and it smelled of death. An hour later, another round of explosive diarrhea with similar results. Went to bed and woke up crippling digestive pain and more explosive diarrhea. An hour after that, the crippling abdominal/digestive pain had not subsided despite taking more antacids and some ibuprofen. More explosive diarrhea with similar results, and I am now writing this report immediately after using the bathroom that second time after waking up. The only food I've consumed since I first ate the coleslaw was just the coleslaw. Having eaten no food now for roughly fifteen hours, symptoms are still present. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Cramps, Stomach Pain See Less

    There is not one bacteria at all, unless a self limiting staff from unclean hands, that gives explosive diarrhea that fast.

    Hi, thanks for your comment - but this is not entirely true. You CAN get sick from food that quick. If the contamination is chemical or biological symptoms can start within minutes. If it is biological contamination it can start as fast as 30 minutes (e.g. staph). Other types of contamination can take longer, it all depends on what it was, but it can be fast!

    On 11/09/22, my cousin & I went here eat the cheesy melts meal with coleslaw included. However, the coleslaw was strange, and it made us throw up. When I got home, I started having more than 15 times of vomiting, as well as many runs to the... See More bathroom due to a severe stomach ache and diarrhea. My cousin also frequently puked, and as a result, the two of us ended up in the hospital. I am hospitalised for 1 day & my cousin had to stay under observation. The nurse determined that since the chicken had been fried, the coleslaw must be contaminated. This is the only thing that we eat, the rest of my other meals is also consumed by rest of family and they are all fine | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain See Less

    Me and my Fiancé were so excited to get our first box. Now we are both puking our brains out. I have OCD and a huge fear of food poisoning. I’m extremely upset and extremely sick and shaking, fever, chills, diarrhea. Will be canceling immediately.

    09/13 update:... See More I am feeling better but my fiancé is still really not feeling well, we both had diarrhea and vomiting, hot sweats, chills and dizzy. I'm guessing it was the coleslaw? Cause my fiancé ate a lot more of it than me and he got really really sick. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Chills, Shaking, Dizziness, Sweating See Less
