“In the past i had ordered an item and it was made wrong so I phoned in and complained and was told that the restaurant would make a note of it and give me a discount the next time i ordered. I decided to take them up on the offer... See More a few days ago and placed my new order and was told it would be ready for pick up in 25 mins. I then recieved a call from them telling me they didnt have what i wanted in stock and what would i like in replacement(kinda weird why didnt they know at the time of my order that they didnt have what i asked for) so i told them what i would like. I ate my box and within 3-4 hours i started to feel really unwell and within another hour or so if ended up in the ER in excruciating pain with a fever and projectile vomiting. I was told that my case was one of the worst food poisoning they have seen in a while. I truley felt like i was going to die and the pain from vomiting all night made it feel my ribs had been broken and i even puked up blood from the trama to my stomach and esophagus. I will NEVER EAT AT THIS PLACE AGAIN and honestly want to boycott it.

Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Other Fever Headache Weakness Dizziness Fatigue Stomach Pain Skin Rash
“I had the paleo bowl on last Saturday eve, May 9th, 2020, picked it up at 7:20pm, it was left on a table marked with alphabetical letters since we have the covid virus going on. Took the food home, and I was sick the next morning. I didn't feel well... See More right after eating it, it was very spicy, so I figured that's what was bothering me.
I felt so sick, just like when I had food poisoning about twice in my life, but this time I didn't vomit. I wish I did at least it would've been out of me.
I had shortness of breath several times, throughout the whole week, I nearly passed out talking to my neighbor. I had fever and I've been taking cold and flu meds, since I thought I got the Corona somehow.

Weakness, my legs were going paralyzed, tingling in my body, my throat and chest had a red rash I also went to the bathroom 4 times that morning, way to go detoxing my bowels. And then when I left to go get groceries, I had the urgency to go again. This lasted 3 days. I couldn't fall asleep from being sick. I closed my eyes and I was dizzy and spinning. The headache wouldn't go away, the stomach burning and the nausea.
I wanted to call in sick sunday night, but i figured it will go away by monday. I pushed through working Monday all day, I was terribly sick. Stomach ache and burning, terrible nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and a killing headache. I called my doctor on Tuesday and ended up telling my boss I must call in for sick even though I've never done it in my life, I had to ask her for the protocol of calling in sick. When I called my doctor she said these are the symptoms of the corona virus, which freaked me out, and I was ordered to go to Care Now, to get tested for Covid 19. They wanted to collect $358 for this test. I nearly fell off the table. They gave me meds for nausea and stomach burning. My test for covid came back negative. It's Saturday night again, it's been a week and I still not feel well. I haven't worked since Tuesday. Is they going to pay my bills? That $10 stupid meal ruined my life. I need them to pay me a week of my salary and my medical bills.
