Lettuce Food Poisoning

Chipotle Mexican Grill, Kingsway, Metrotown, Burnaby, BC, Canada

Type: Poisoned
Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting Chills Fever Headache Weakness
“I ordered the beef/carnitas burrito bowl (no rice, no beans) with lettuce, my sister in law ordered chicken burrito bowl (no rice, no beans) with lettuce as well. We both had pretty much the same thing just different protein, who knows what ingredient made us sick.

Next day, we felt... See More sick around the same time...started with a headache and felt really weak, once we started feeling sick everything just progressed so quickly (vomitted, diarrhea, chills, mild fever). We both had no idea how we got sick, and the rest of the family was fine. Obviously, because only both of us had it, nobody else did.

I reported this to the head office, I got a call back from the US, sadly he didn't give a damn about it, he made it sound like I was making a big fuss and because "nobody else reported that they got sick", for $22, it's really not worth my time (or ANYONE) to make a false claim for a free meal.

I had to ask him to refund me, he wasn't even apologetic.

just because you get a lot of customers all the time does not mean you should have such bad attitude especially towards those who got sick from eating your food.

I used to LOVEEEE them, never again!

ALDI, Saint Charles Rock Road, Saint Ann, MO, USA

Type: Poisoned
Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting Cramps Body Ache
“I was sick for almost two weeks after I had eaten from the now recalled bag of “Little Salad Bar” garden lettuce, with chopped carrots and radishes. Within about a week, I had flu symptoms with body aches, nausea, stomach cramps, and severe diarrhea which lasted a little more than... See More two weeks. Luckily, I was at home during the first bad week on vacation, but in the bathroom a lot. I had many sleepless nights because of the diarrhea attacks which would come suddenly and with no warning. Sometimes I didn’t quite make it to the bathroom and messed myself. It was a very bad illness and unpredictable and hope that I never experience it again! Food poisoning is real! My illness began on about June 12 and lasted through about June 29.
I am better now and the diarrhea and other symptoms are gone without treatment.
