Mayonnaise Food Poisoning

Mayonnaise Food Poisoning

Mayonnaise can be a source of food poisoning. Due to its high-fat content, when not stored properly, mayonnaise can become an ideal environment for bacteria, like Listeria, to grow. Listeria can be especially harmful to pregnant women, people over the age of 65, and those with weakened immune systems.

Ate a 6 inch Subway sandwich with ham, American cheese, lettuce, onions, mayo, and mustard along with a water bottle. This was approximately 12:30pm PST on 4/20/24. Ate nothing else today and the symptoms hit like a bus 3-4 hours later. It’s hard to stand up or keep water down without throwing up.  | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain, Cramps, Chills, Headache

experienced the most severe vomiting I have ever experienced. I vomited at least two more times over the next couple of hours. Today I feel week and tired and have no desire to eat, but I have not vomited since 3am today.
I ate at this restaurant with two other people who had different items and neither of them got sick or felt sick.
I had a steak and cheese sandwich with mayonnaise and 3 packets of sealed Chahula hot sauce. I had a sealed bag of salt and vinegar potato chips and a fountain drink mix of non-sweetend ice tea and zero calorie lemonade, that I shared with one of the people who I dined with, again, that person did not get sick.  | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Headache, Weakness, Loss of Appetite
