    Gyros can very well be the source of food poisoning. Improperly prepared meat and fresh vegetables could lead to contamination with harmful bacteria such as E.coli and Salmonella. In more serious instances, the tomatoes could be infected with Hepatitis A, which led to an outbreak in Idaho in 2012.

    I ordered the gyro Ceasar salad on Tuesday 5/31 for lunch, I usually have a healthy appetite and can eat an entire salad but noticed the meat was greasy and made me feel sluggish and gave me chills, so I only ate half. The next day, 6/1/2022,... See More I had the other half for lunch but this time whatever food born bacteria was in the meat seemed to have only gotten worse. I left the office feeling dizzy, cold, and confused. I woke up the next morning, Thursday, with a 102 degree fever. I had to miss work because I could not get rid of the chills and cold sweats. Today, Friday, I woke up (in a puddle of sweat) and could hardly move, I had to miss another day of work. Fever finally broke at around 2pm, no more chills but bubble gut and diarrhea. No appetite and very lethargic. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Fever, Chills, Dizziness, Sweating, Loss of Appetite See Less
