weeks ago. We couldn’t figure it out. I got sick the day before yesterday. The bars are the only common denominator. It took me awhile to figure it out and I ate one yesterday and the day before. I have never been so sick in my entire life. This variety was recalled in 2016 and a lot of other Quaker Oats products were recalled in December/January.  | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain, Cramps, Chills

I love Trader Joe’s, but their frozen chicken burritos with refried beans have to have something wrong with them. I ate one at 5 pm yesterday, and by 4 pm today, I had very bad cramps that turned into diarrhea and chills. What started out as a … See More
large amount of poop has turned into watery diarrhea and serious chills in the last 2 hrs. I ate no other likely culprits yesterday and today: plain white rice, an Homeycrisp apple, Skippy peanut butter, Nature Valley granola bars, refrigerated So Delicious coconut milk, and one of these burritos. I haven’t consumed any other protein since Saturday night (2 days ago,) and it was frozen shrimp that everyone in my
house ate for dinner. I feel like the TJ’s carne asada burritos give me issues too, but this has been going on for the last 3 hrs to no avail.  | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Cramps, Chills

It wouldn’t happen almost 12 hours later. You probably have a stomach bug.



Hi, thanks for your comment. TIP: Onset times for food poisoning vary greatly. Chemical contamination can be within minutes, but there are other pathogens in which the onset of symptoms is not immediate and can show up later (e.g. Campylobacter - 2 to 5 days; E. coli - 1 to 8 days; Vibrio - 1 to 7 days).

Foodborne illnesses tend to reproduce in your system where the infection can enter the body into massive loads. If an infection is present, it may take 10 to 100 days to spread. Foodborne diseases generally take 4-24 hours to incubate before showing symptoms but sometimes can come within 6 to 16 hours after consumption.

Additionally, how, when, and if you become ill after eating contaminated food will depend not only on the ‘bug’, but also the amount of exposure, your age, and your health.

I just Googled and they are made by General Mills. I had issues with Cheerios made by General Mills.



Loaded with Roundup. Do a quick Google search



I stopped eating granola because it made me feel sick after. But it wasn't my stomach it was more in my head. A really funny feeling. It was the bear granola. But now I skeptical and just don't eat granola anymore.
