    I ate kettle brand chips (salt and vinegar) last night and began to feel sick about a half hour later. It began with nausea and then vomiting/diarrhea throughout the night. My girlfriend experienced a similar sickness a few weeks ago after we had the honey Dijon kettle chips | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Vomiting, Nausea See Less

    I seriously doubt that the chips are the issue, as they are made/processed by a reputable company, which has been around for decades. Can you think of anything else you ate that day? If you really believe it was the chips—and it may be, since both of you have been sick, contact the store, and more importantly, the company, right away.
