See More was in that moment when I realized that the chicken had a bad smell, you know the kind of smell you get when the chicken is beyond its expiration date and should have been thrown away instead of being cooked.

Too bad, because not only will I report this, but I’ll also see where I can take this. I’m never eating food from that restaurant again.

It reminded me of the odor of canned cat food. There were white pieces in the mixture and the smell was overwhelming to me, however I'm overly sensitive to odors and tried to dismiss it. I seasoned heavily thinking it was just a new product for us. No. I couldn't eat it. My family and I had diarrhea for the evening, even though we forced down very little. I vomited for days after, but that was probably just because I was so grossed out after cooking the mess. I can't think of it without literally gagging now and I'm not able to eat any meat or meat substitutes without feeling nauseated. This was beginning-mid May, but the product was in my freezer for at least a week.
