Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Cramps Stomach Pain
“I ate a bacon, sausage & egg wrap around 11am on 3/14/20. I needed to use the bathroom in the early-afternoon, but it wasn't a big deal. Didn't have anything the rest of the day until dinner around 6pm. In the middle of dinner, I needed to excuse myself to... See More use the bathroom, due to cramping and nauseating feelings in my stomach. Clearly a lot different than earlier. I needed to use the bathroom one more time before bed, and have been in-and-out of the bathroom several times since 4am on 3/15/20. I can only assume it was from the wrap because 1. The bacon was floppy and looked lightly cooked. I assumed this was how it was supposed to be since no one ever cooks crispy bacon and since these foods are usually precooked; and 2. My stomach hurt way too quickly while eating dinner. The food wouldn't have had enough time to process at that point.

Asda Tiptree Supermarket, Church Road, Tiptree, Colchester, UK

Type: Poisoned
Symptoms: Vomiting

I was woken up an hour or so later and had to rush to the toilet so that I could throw up. I was violently... See More throwing up for 2-3 mins before making my way back to bed. Later, I was compelled yet again to rush to the toilet to vomit. I could also see the remaining bits from the muffin in the toilet and around the toilet bowl along with globules of blood where I must have burst a few blood vessels due to the violent vomiting.

The best before date was 19th April 2020. I returned the two remaining muffins to Asda on Monday 8th May 2020. I explained to the woman at the Kiosk my encounter and my vomiting symptoms. She apologised to me and said she would repoet it and get the other items checked. She not only reimbursed the £1 I had spent on the muffins but also gave me £5.00 worth of vouchers (initially, she was only going to give me £2.00 worth of vouchers, but when I said I would give a good review, she then offered to give me the additional £3.00 worth of vouchers). I thanked her and entered the store to do my shopping. I went straight over to the muffins and found another one dated 19th April still for sale. I mentioned this to one of the male members of staff and explained I had already reported my experience to the woman at the Kiosk. He said he will report to the manager and whilst going through the remaining stock, said that he wasn't sure who was on shift on Monday for that particular department, and he then stated that obviously, they weren't doing their job properly.
