    May 24, 2022 - Lettuce is one of the most common causes of food poisoning. Since the start of 2018, there have been over 10 major lettuce illness outbreaks involving E.coli. The 2 most recent involved packaged salad kits that sickened at least 30 and romaine lettuce grown in Salinas, CA that sickened at least 138.

    Product: Lettuce

    Got food poisoning yesterday. Think it was the lettuce or the guacamole. Only things I had that my family didn’t. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

    Bought the pre-packed egg salad (egg, potato, cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes & Mayo) for lunch today. A couple of hours after eating it I experienced severe sharp stomach pains and really bad diarrhoea. I can tell I have food poisoning. Skipped breakfast so it can’t be anything else. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Stomach Pain See Less

    My son and husband ate the refried beans and Mexican rice on Sunday the 15. My husband got violently I’ll about 5 hours later throwing up and diarrhea. My two year old has been having super bad diarrhea and saying his tummy hurts all night and all... See More day today. I didn’t eat the refried bean or rice I had the blk beans and white rice. I just want to give a heads up. This was literally the only thing we ate Sunday the 15. We narrowed it down to the beans and rice, please let me know if maybe they were expired or temp was off. I have worked Gm food service for over 20 years and I know this happens from time to time. Maybe temps or cross contamination. Beans and rice and lettuce were always the culprit. Please get back with me to let me know it has been addressed. Thank you so much. I’m not mad like I said coming from food service background this happens just when it does I like to inform the place of business so dates and reps are being taken correctly and food handling as well. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain See Less

    I grabbed chicken shawarma wrap on Saturday around 4:30PM. I asked for hummus, tomato, lettuce, tahini sauce and hot sauce. Not even an hour after I ate that, I got hit with diarrhea. I like going there but this is the second time I got sick from their food. | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less

    We’ve been sick from this place too (different location) and it was the chicken as well. It’s a shame they don’t do something about their food standards as it is our favorite shawarma place and makes it very hard for us to ever go back.
