    High-fat fried foods like fries can cause worse diarrhea-related symptoms than usual. Diarrhea, severe stomach pains, and vomiting are among the symptoms of food poisoning with eating contaminated fries.  Fries exposed to the air at room temperature for two hours can develop toxin-spreading bacteria that cause food poisoning.

    Feb 21 Bacon Garlic Burgers from Sonic Drive In Sick

    On Wednesday my oldest and I went to a fast food drive up and each got a burger and some tots.  We got a chicken sandwich and fries for my youngest kiddo (knock on wood, youngest is... See More still asymptomatic) Within 45 or so minutes of eating my oldest and I felt queasy and rumbling in our stomachs. In about 11/2-2 hrs, my oldest puked at work and came home.  The first vomit was food/then green twice/and then bile color. Diarrhea accompanied. At 9:30, I took them to the local ER as they could not stop vomiting.  They were treated for acute vomiting/acute diarrhea.  They took urine and blood samples.  They gave them Zofran and pain meds and sent us home. Kiddo continued to vomit several more times and the next day was just diarrhea.  On Friday, I vomited and started non stop diarrhea. We have terrible gut pain and gas.  We drank Gatorade, stayed hydrated, ate crackers and applesauce when we were able and yesterday we thought we were getting better. No one had any symptoms. We had disinfected as we went along to try to ensure no spread to youngest kid.  This evening we are nauseated and I have the diarrhea back.  We both took Zofran.  We know we have something.  We ate nothing that day other than the burger meal.  We had an appt with primary care on Monday and are awaiting stool test results. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting, Other, Gas, Bile See Less
