Café Mezzo, Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, CA, USA

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting
“I ate the veggie delight salad. It contained lettuce, vinaigrette, beans, chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, croutons, avocado, and a hardboiled egg. I suspect the culprit was the lettuce - it was probably poorly washed. The restaurant appeared messy and disorganized. The tables were not clean and the staff were mixing all... See More the salads in the same bowl. My symptoms appeared almost exactly 24 hours after the time of consumption, which was approximately 1:30pm on September 21st, 2019. The symptoms have persisted over the past 24 hours and have still not diminished completely. I am quite certain I received food poisoning from the contaminated salad as the only things I ate between the salad and the symptoms were tortilla chips (from a bag), plain pasta (that I prepared myself), and some crackers (from a bag).

Salata, Town Square Place, Sugar Land, TX, USA

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea
“mix with corn, carrots, cucumbers, sundried tomatoes, broccoli, with Caesar dressing, bacon, and croutons. Water from the restaurant.

Less than 15 minutes (an accurate account) after finishing most of the salad, I felt a very sudden/quick urge to have a bowel movement. Good thing I was 5 minutes from home... See More because it was definitely an emergency -- very out of the ordinary for me. Had the runs just about 20 minutes after my meal.

Anthony`s Pizza, East Broadway Street, Oviedo, FL, USA

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea
“On Friday May 31st, at around 8:50PM, I called and ordered food. I picked up the food around 9:20ish. I Ordered 10 wings. Plain and fried extra crispy. I also ordered a large caesar salad with extra parmesan, croutons and dressing. When I got back home, I discovered there was... See More a large crouton already in the small cup of dressing I was given. I did not use that dressing, and used the other ones instead. The wings however, were not cooked. They were still wet and slimy on the inside, but I was hungry so I ate it anyways. Woke up the following morning with severe stomach cramps, nausea and diarrhea. Stomach cramps are not as bad as they were in the morning, but they still hurt. Extremely disappointed in the restaurant for not only getting my order wrong, but not ensuring that the food was cooked to the proper requirements and temperatures. Will never be eating there again.

Aquarium Restaurant, Water Street, Denver, CO, USA

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea
“Ordered appetizer platter the calimari was chewy/rubbery, lobster crab dip tasted like dirty dish water and the chicken in the enchiladas was pink. Ordered one side of hush puppies, they were dripping greased from the bottom of the cone along with tasting dirty fish water.
My friend ordered the Bayou... See More City etouffe and could not finish it due to the overwhelming peppery taste. The shrimp was not cleaned/deveined properly, still had poop inside it! There was only one scallop in the entire dish and the side toast was burnt, hard, and dry. The three slices were more like giant croutons. The grilled shrimp and grilled mahi mahi was drenched in a garlic sauce that was not described on the menu. I’m allergic to garlic! The steamed vegetables (zucchini, squash, carrot, and red onions) that came with the grilled seafood were soft, old, and limp. I immediately stopped eating, but my husband finished eating his steak/lobster and the hush puppies. Within an hour after eating them he was very sweaty, nauseous, and had diarrhea spending 30+ mins in the restaurant bathroom. The only good thing about our dinner was the alcoholic drinks which we ordered from the bar. We spent 2 hrs (6-8pm on a Tuesday) with a barely half way filled restaurant. This entire experience at a place that’s suppose to be fresh and fun was not at all worth the $200 bill.

Wendy's, Wood Avenue, Easton, PA, USA

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Nausea
“We have the free meals for one year voucher so we went today to claim our free food. I ate a southwestern avocado salad, usually my favorite. Oddly, they added a bag of croutons which they never do as it’s not part of the salad but I added it in... See More anyways. The taste felt different today of the salad overall, very very acidic from the lemon. I couldn’t finish it. At first stomach wise I was fine. That was my last meal for the day at around 6:30 PM. Then, I went to sleep at 10:00 PM and woke up with a ridiculous stomach ache at 12:30 AM. I feel like I’m about to throw up and my stomach feels like a mess. Besides that, I finished it off with a vanilla frosty at around 7:00. That salad has never given me a reaction like this until now, like I said, even the taste was off. Honestly here I am writing this at 1:04 AM with a stomach ache getting worse as I write this about to throw up. Forget the free meals, I’m abstaining from Wendys.
