IHOP, Eliot Street, Cambridge, MA, USA

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting
“My sister and I went to IHOP in Harvard for lunch on Wednesday January 30th, 2019. She got cupcake pancakes and I got the classic steakburger with bacon. Upon arrival, I had noticed that the kitchen had forgotten to put the bacon on my burger. The waitress apologized, and she... See More said she would bring a couple strips to me. I didn't want to eat all of my burger before they brought the bacon to me, so I started eating my fries instead.

They were taking a very long time with the bacon, as I had almost finished all of my fries. My sister said I should start eating my burger before it got cold, and I was actually thinking the same thing. It was only a little warm, and it was rarer than I'd normally order (they forgot to ask me how I wanted it cooked). When they finally brought the bacon, I already ate half the burger. I finished it with the long-awaited bacon applied, and there was no problem (yet).

There were no symptoms for the rest of the day, and most of the next day. However, at around 8:00 PM, I started feeling nauseous. We had ordered Papa John's, and I felt sick before I even started eating. Around 9:00 PM, I felt terrible, so I went to the bathroom. Soon after, I violently vomited all of the Papa John's into the toilet. Not long after, I started having uncontrollable diarrhea that accompanied the vomiting. So here I am, soaked in my own diarrhea, hanging over the puke bucket, waiting for the next round. I ruined my comforter, throw blanket, sheet, and mattress pad in the process. I also ruined my nice Nike sweatpants that I had purchased fairly recently ($50.00 down the drain). Overcome by lethargy, I had no sense of time, and around 1:00 AM, I was brought to the Somerville ER by ambulance after I saw blood in my diarrhea.

The doctors took some samples, put me on an IV, and gave me antibiotics. At this time, my diarrhea was completely red, and not solid at all (not to mention that it smelled very unpleasant). I was transported to Cambridge Hospital to be kept as an inpatient for a few days. There they confirmed my suspicion that the burger was to blame. I was stuck on a clear fluid diet of broth and juice until my diarrhea subsided. I was then put on a BRAT diet to make sure I could keep solid food down.

By Saturday afternoon, I was back home, and I was able to attend school on Monday (I'm 17). What I've learned from this experience is to NEVER ORDER A BURGER FROM IHOP AGAIN.

Coronavirus or Food Poisoning? Information about the current outbreak.

Report Type: Outbreak
“There is some confusion surrounding the current Coronavirus (called 2019-NocV) outbreak that began in December 2019 and whether you can get it through food. Here is some information:

What is Coronavirus?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses found in both animals and humans. Past outbreaks include Middle East Respiratory... See More Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The current novel Coronavirus (a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans) is thought to originate in live food markets in Wuhan, China through animals and human contact.

How is it transmitted?
Coronaviruses such as the current 2019-NocV are transmitted through the respiratory system, not the gut, so there is a low risk of infection through the consumption of contaminated food. Restaurants can be a site of transmission of coronavirus because of the large numbers of people congregating in close quarters and then coughing/sneezing could spread the disease just like in other places (transportation, schools, etc). But the food itself isn’t a likely vehicle.

Signs of infection?
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases and those with weakened immune systems, an infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.

Recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO):
Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth+nose when coughing/sneezing, and avoiding close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.
