    Popcorn could be the source of food poisoning. In 2012, ready-to-eat popcorn was recalled due to contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that leads to food poisoning and severe illness. Listeria can be especially harmful to pregnant women, people over the age of 65, and those with weakened immune systems.

    I had the popcorn chicken and buffalo tater tots and within about 10 minutes I felt so nauseous I could not finish my food. My friend finished the rest, us thinking it could just be a me thing but she reported to me later that she feels... See More absolutely awful and I am now feeling stomach pain, nausea and quite warm. I also feel like I may vomit but have not yet. I have not had trouble with the food in the past, though I will explain my concerns below: The staff are lovely and considerate, but I have been hearing lots of them talk about management complaints, understaffing, not being able to take breaks, networking issues affecting card readers, tickets not being printed for orders and not being paid wages correctly or at all. I think this food poisoning is a serious concern for their business and that staff management has gone downhill. I seriously advise not visiting and any staff who may see this to consider taking immediate action towards this. | Symptoms: Nausea, Stomach Pain See Less
