Target Grocery, 87th Street Northeast, Otsego, MN, USA

Type: Poisoned
Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Cramps Headache Stomach Pain Body Ache
“Ate some raw spinach from bag of mixed salad from there. Had three days before expiration although i had to pick out the best, should have thrown away. Next morning starting at 6am, non stop watery diarrhea then 1-2 times hourly, stomach cramps and pain progressed and got worse. Fever... See More of 100.5, terrible body aches from shoulder and neck down, bad pounding headache. Unsure if Covid 19 or spinach. Then all throughout the night, more severely cramping and going to the bathroom with the squirts. Today, bed rest again but any sudden movements and stomach will cramp up. Still going to the bathroom 1-2.5 hours to flush out watery bowels. Feel like crap. Fever has subsided. Have not been able to eat, feel i could vomit but haven't. Had a bag of leftover mixed greens, mostly spinach at noon for lunch. No one else ate it. Next morning started diarrhea then fever and body aches all over.

“I bought a pack of ribeyes from a worker that was shelving fresh meat. The steak he gave me had not even been shelved yet. The date June 4 2020, the label read “cook or freeze by June 9 2020”.

Most sources said if it did not smell rotten, it is good to go. So I proceed to cook it. Keep in mind that I have been dieting and steak and salad has been my staple dinner for the past 3 weeks, so I have prepared it the exact same way everytime, medium. I eat it, wake up the next morning with a terrible stomach ache, extreme nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. This continues for 2 days before I rush to the ER. They perform all sorts of tests on me, chest x ray, blood sugar, urine, cat scan, even COVID. Everything came back perfectly normal and the Covid test came back negative. My doctor said, I put something in my body that gave me a virus. I wonder what that could be.
