Product: Raisin Bran


I have never had a food allergy. I recently bought the generic brand Raisin Bran crunch cereal at Aldi. I enjoyed a bowl as a quick, late dinner around 8 pm. Within 30 minutes my hands felt itchy, my ears felt itchy and my mouth and tongue … See More
began to swell. Another half hour later I began to experience severe cramping in my lower abdomen. By 10 pm my whole body was red and hot to the touch, even though I was shivering. Shortly after, the diarrhea started. I was running to the bathroom every hour and around 4 am my bowels turned to blood. That’s when I went to the ER. I had developed infectious colitis. I spent 3 days in the hospital getting IV fluids for severe dehydration and antibiotics pumped into my body. I just came home today. I may have saved $2 by buying generic, but it’s going to end up costing me thousands of dollars in hospital bills!  | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Dehydration

I bought a box of Kellogs Mega Raisin Bran Nov '23. I usually eat it on the same days I take my Moynjaro medication cause nothing sounds appetizing on this med. I thought I was getting sick from my med but the 3rd bowl this month had … See More

Millville Crunchy Granola Raisin Bran, MO, USA

1 year ago reported by user-gxcxq439

Suspected food poisoning. Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting
Suspected source: Five or six times, vomited after eating Millville crunchy granola Raisin Bran. I’ve eaten this for breakfast most mornings for months with no problem. On six consecutive mornings I vomited after breakfast. I use water, not milk. I thought … See More
it could be the lemon juice. It might have been stale, so I cut it cut it out. The next morning I vomited again and concluded it must be the instant coffee that I’d been drinking with breakfast. I vomited anyway. This experimentation happened a couple more times. Each time, the experience was severe. I would have to lie down on the kitchen floor for 30 minutes to recover. There were a few days gap when I ate no Raisin Bran Crunch, and of course, no vomiting. Then, the last episode, when I consumed only Millville Raisen Bran Crunch from Aldi’s. All of the events were with water. I never use milk. All of the cereal boxes came from Aldi’s in Florissant, MO. My wife consumed it and still does with no consequences. Each of my episodes were telegraphed by a mild heat-flush. The vomiting would last, it seemed, until every last bit of it was expelled. For now, I’m thinking it is a food allergy, similar to one I have for salmon.
Onset: Ten to 15 minutes.
Duration: About a week, until I quite eating it.
Sick: Just me. Not my wife who ate the stuff from the same box.
Additional information: I think it might be something in the crunchy rather than the bran. But I’m done with experimenting. 😝I don’t think it was food poisoning.? It seems to be something that my system decided to reject. … just like the salmon which I enjoyed until one day 30 plus years ago  | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting
